[eng] Agricultural activity of rural households and economic and social cohesion The functions of agricultural activity relating to economic and social cohesion are becoming fullyfledged components of national and eu policies. Surveys have been carried out in several French regions in households exercising an agricultural activity. The diversity of the forms of exercise of this activity was condensed into a typology. The various functions of household agricultural activity (economic functions, social integration functions, hedonistic functions) can be assigned in three major areas: professional life, personal and social life, family and domestic life. This analysis provides an insight into the mechanisms by which agricultural activity plays a role in the economic and social cohesion of rural society. It also highlights that agricultural policy measures are adapted to only a fraction of households having an agricultural activity. [fre] Les fonctions de l'activité agricole relatives à la cohésion économique et sociale deviennent à part entière des éléments des politiques nationales et communautaires. Des enquêtes auprès des ménages ayant une activité agricole ont été réalisées dans plusieurs régions françaises. La diversité des formes d'exercice de l'activité agricole a été résumée sous forme d'une typologie et il est possible de préciser les diverses fonctions de l'activité agricole (économiques, d'intégration sociale, hédonistes) pour trois domaines distincts : vie professionnelle, vie personnelle et sociale, vie familiale et domestique. Cette analyse permet de mieux saisir les mécanismes par lesquels l'activité agricole contribue à la cohésion économique et sociale du monde rural ; elle fait aussi ressortir que les mesures de politique agricole ne sont adaptées qu'à une fraction des ménages ayant une activité agricole.
