Este artigo tem por objetivo investigar a evolução da renda, da pobreza e da desigualdade na agricultura brasileira a partir dos anos 1990, por Unidade da Federação (UF). Especificamente visa: determinar a velocidade da queda da pobreza nesse período; avaliar os relacionamentos entre renda, pobreza e desigualdade; identificar a existência de padrões específicos, segundo as UF e cortes populacionais, definidos com base em critérios de origem principal da renda do domicílio (atividades agrícolas e não agrícolas) e local da residência (rural ou urbana). Como hipótese de trabalho considera-se que o conjunto de observações é composto pelos domicílios com certo grau de especialização na atividade agrícola, razão pela qual não fazem parte da amostra aqueles com menos de 10% dos rendimentos provenientes da agricultura. Como base de dados são utilizadas as PNADs de 1992 a 2006.----------------------------------------------This paper investigates changes in income, poverty and inequality in the Brazilian agricultural sector since the early 1990s.
