Economic crisis and recession has been the context for many research taking through. Basing on an empirical research and using mainly the survey results of Hanoi female workers, this chapter seeks to understand how the pattern and trend of the out-migration female workers has been changed; what factors determined the out-migration and how the consequences are in the context of the economic crisis and recession. This chapter also improves the out-migration act as a “relief valve” for a local economy where jobs and investment opportunities are scarce and the migration out flow from urban to rural is more vulnerable to economic shocks.
