    Abstract

    The study examines the different aspects of labor in the rural household economy. It identifies the factors that significantly determine the rural households' labor allocation decisions. Moreover, it also looks at how the availability and growth of rural nonagricultural employment opportunities affect the rural households' labor allocation decisions and the rural labor markets particularly for hired labor. The paper also analyzes and examines rural nonagricultural households' pattern of labor allocation and their sources of income as well as the structure of employment. It also makes use of labor market indicators to trace the labor market links between the agricultural and rural nonagricultural sectors.
