Inflated Geometric Distribution to Study the Distribution of Rural Out-Migrants

Tika Ram Aryal

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to apply inflated geometric distribution to study the distribution of rural out-migrants from a household. The inflated geometric distribution is found to be a reasonable approximation to describe this distribution. The estimated value of risk parameter α was found to be 0.7004229. Findings may help planners and policy makers for designing more effective and equitable rural and urban policies.
