The changing role of agriculture in rural employment


Rural employment: an international perspective: 305-326
The changing role of agriculture in rural employment
In the most rural regions of OECD countries, the share of agriculture employment in regional employment is higher than in the intermediate and the most urbanized regions. However, in the 1980s the agricultural labour force declined at the most rapid rate in the most rural regions. On the other hand, growth rates of non-agricultural employment in the intermediate and most rural regions were relatively high indicating diversification of the local economy.
