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. In particular, it aims to determine the speed of poverty reduction in the period under study. evaluating the relationship among income, poverty and inequality, identifying specific patterns by State and population groups, defined by main source of family income (agricultural and non agricultural activities) and by area of residence (rural or urban). The sample analyzed is composed of families with at least some degree of specialization in agriculture. Thus, families with less than 10% of income coming from agriculture are excluded from the sample. The data used come from the National Household Surveys (PNAD) from 1992 to 2006.
