Abstract: This article analyzes the indices for nonfarm agricultural activities, which combine agricultural activities with both employment and wages. They were made with panel data of the Living Measurement Standard Survey (1993, 1998, 2001 and 2005) and they were processed with econometric model as a parametric technique (Binary dependent variable model). The trend indices explain the varied combination of nonfarm and farming agricultural activities. In summary, when the economic public policy makers promote preventative measures in the labour market, we see that indices for nonfarm agricultural activities grow. In fact, small farmers use first, second and third nonfarm employment as livelihood strategies for clashing the public policy restrictive.
