Abstract: The present study is an attempt to examine the dependency of the lac cultivating households on the earnings from the lac cultivation. The study also tried to determine the factors responsible for the variation in the relative contribution of the returns from Lac cultivations across the Lac cultivating households. For this purpose a household survey was conducted in the Karmadi village, Purulia district, West Bengal. The study noticed gross earning is moderately responsive to changes in Lac earnings. The volume of land possession of host trees and the total working members in Lac cultivation are found to be the most important factors determining the variation in proportional Lac earning for the sample households.
