Description: The Tajikistan Household Panel Survey (THPS) data were collected in the framework of the research project "Migration and Remittances in Central Asia: The Case of Kazakhstan and Tajikistan", which was funded by the Volkswagen Foundation in 2009-2013. The THPS 2011 was initiated by the Institute for East- and Southeast European Studies Regensburg, Germany, to explore migration and remittances in Tajikistan. The study was implemented in cooperation with the SHARQ Research Center in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. The THPS 2011 was based on the Tajikistan Living Standards Measurement Survey (TLSS) administered by the World Bank and UNICEF in 2007 (wave 1) and 2009 (wave 2). These data generate a unique panel data base on migration and remittances in a developing country.
