Stratified sampling method has been used to collect data and descriptive statistics have been used to present demographic information. The analysis of the research revealed that coefficient of determination R square for the dependent variable, i.e., the handloom workers migration is 0.512 that suggests the four independent variables named Psychological, Health Hazard, Financial and Non-Financial factors which explain 51.2% of the variation to support the factors affecting the handloom worker’ migration.
