Abstract

The importance of non-farm employment to rural households was widely acknowledged. However, empirical evidence on the relationship between household assets and non-farm activities is hardly found. This study identifies the determinants of a household’s selection of a livelihood strategy. Results from multinomial logistic regression showed that the size of cultivated land was a significant factor for a livelihood strategy. The average education of working members, the share of other non-farm income and the availability of credit were also the significant determinants of a diversified livelihood strategy. This indicates that any policy intervention should be distinctive for certain group of paddy farming households.
