Determinants of Rural Non-farm Employment in Telangana Region of Andhra Pradesh: A Case Study


  • M Koteswara Rao
  • P Venu Gopal


This study explicates that Agriculture still continues to be the major source of employment in the developing countries like India. It is distressing to note that more than five decades of agricultural growth could not relieve the burden of agriculture in absorbing the labor force. In this paper, the determinants of Rural Non-farm Employment (RNFE) in telengana region in Adilabad district are analyzed. A multivariate statistical technique is used in the analysis of determinants and agricultural, demographic variables and infrastructure facilities are taken into consideration. The authors conclude that the analysis on the trends and determinants of RNFE clearly show that agricultural and demographic changes have a significant bearing on the level and the composition of RNFE in the study area.
