Income substitution effect, Employment status, Land management.


In the context of large-scale population mobility, this study investigated the effect of income substitution on land management decisions of peasant families. The results showed that: (1) Compared with the employees without fixed employers, the employment status of employees with fixed employers, self-employed workers and employers all increased the possibility of families choosing more socialized management modes such as farming generation and land transfer; (2) Employment identity difference plays a role in household land management decisions through income substitution effect.
