Abstract: 
The modes of remittances of households in Bangladesh have been categorised as 'No Remit- tances', 'Internal Remittances' and 'International Remittances'. This paper using a Multinomial Logit Model studies the associations between these modes and the households' basic characteristics. The study reveals that household level variables like rural-urban locations, age and sex of the households heads, religion, ratio of male, adult and young members etc. are potentially significant in households' orientation to remittances. Higher education however is not significant. The study surprisingly shows that the households with female heads are more likely to receive both internal and international remittances compared to the households headed by males.
