Abstract

Occupation, income, education, status, gender, race, environment, culture etc are some of the determinants that help us to know the potential social mobility of a group of people. Among these occupation plays a vital role in determining social mobility. The present paper attempts to examine the intergenerational occupational mobility of the Bodo tribal people of Udalguri district under Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD) of Assam, with the help of Markov chain approach. The study of occupational mobility of these people has become immensely important as the newly formed autonomous district (BTAD) opened up new offices as well as new opportunities that have brought changes to the lives of the people. Again only a few studies have been carried out so far of these people living in this area. The findings from analyzing a set of primary data with the help of Markov Chain approach reveal that the occupational mobility of the Tribal community in Udalguri district in general has undergone a great change and there are reasons to believe that it occurs due to the formation of BTAD, which is supposed to fulfil the hopes and aspirations of the Bodo tribal people.
