Abstract

The pluriactivity of rural households in the Brazilian Northeast and South: rural poverty and public policies - The paper aims to undo the idea that pluriactivity finds favorable environment to its growth in regions with dynamic and modern local economies. The research is based on information processing from the microdata of the Pesquisa Nacional por Amostra de Domicílios ? PNAD (from 1992 to 1999 and from 2001 to 2005). This paper also points out that, in the case of the South region, the growth (or not growth) of pluriactivity ? and its influence over family farms ? depends fundamentally on political conceptions and political actions. In the Northeast, pluriactivity increases associated to poverty in interior areas of the region.
