Off-farm employment and rural development: Pakistan. Non-agricultural occupations in marginal farm households



Off-farm employment and rural development: Pakistan. Non-agricultural occupations in marginal farm households



Sozialokonomische Schriften zur Ruralen Entwicklung (81): 497



The question of whether and to what extent off-farm employment can contribute to developing marginal farm households in Pakistan is studied. Marginal farms include those of up to 2 ha in the irrigated areas of Pakistan Punjab, and owner-cum-tenant farms of less than 3 ha, as well as tenant farms of less than 4 ha. Data were gathered from 2 villages in Faisalabad District, and surveys were conducted from December 1978-April 1979, encompassing all 1074 village households.
