    The history of livelihood analysis stems from the agroecosystem analysis developed by Conway (1985, 1986, and 1987) and Gypmantasiri et al (1980) at the University of Chiang Mai. They analysed the relative values of the villages in terms of bar diagrams of relative sources of income, expenditure pattern etc. (Chambers, 1992). The livelihood analysis is concerned with stability, crises and coping, relative income, expenditure, credit and debt. In reality, livelihood analysis analyses multiple activities (Chambers, 1992). Here the information is diagrammed to represent family size, income, indebtedness, crisis management of people belonging to different social classes of the society. The livelihood analysis can be done very well by the farmers under the active guidance of the facilitators as it has been proved in India and elsewhere.
