The study, which was conducted in two of the most heavily earthquake-affected districts, found that the migration from the villages had both positive and negative effects at different stages after the disaster. Immediately after the earthquake (during the rescue phase), migrant households were more vulnerable than non-migrant households, since they had fewer able-bodied men and had more women, children and elderly people among them.
