The empirical study has been conducted to identify the determinants of livelihood choices among Kuki tribes. The study is also an attempt to identify the present livelihood pattern of surveyed households. The study stands on stratified multi-stage random sampling with the sample size of 105. A binary logistic model has been employed to deal with the objectives of the study. The empirical analysis found that agricultural activities are more popular among Kuki households. The logistic model revealed that age and gender of the head of the household significantly determine the livelihood option. Economic factors like land-man ratio, indebtedness and type of ration card are found significant with regards to the choice of livelihood. The model also explored that few basic infrastructures like availability of proper irrigation facility, good condition of the local road also significantly determine the choice of livelihood among Kuki tribes.
