Abstract

MORA-RIVERA, Jorge; DOMINGUEZ, Marlen Martínez; VILLANUEVA, José Luis Jaramillo  and  ALVARADO, María de los Ángeles Chávez. Participation in the non-agricultural sector in rural Mexico: a gender perspective. Rev. bras. estud. popul. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.2, pp.367-389. ISSN 1980-5519.  https://doi.org/10.20947/s0102-3098a0020.

Rural households diversify their income as a strategy to minimize risk, reduce variability and ensure a minimum level of income. With information panel of the National Rural Household Survey of Mexico, this study examined under a gender perspective, the factors that determine participation in the non-agricultural sector. The results indicate that employed in non-agricultural occupations, men participate with lower levels of education and indigenous status limits the incorporation of both genders. In non-agricultural self-employment activities are essential household accumulated wealth and financial services, communication and transportation.

Keywords : Gender; Non-agricultural employment; Rural households; Mexico.
