Abstract


The study presents an analysis of a domestic income monitoring system carried out in communities of the Mamirauá Reserve, in the state of Amazonas. The objective of the study was to compare the composition of domestic income in two different periods in time (1995-2005), in order to describe the main changes, especially in regard to seasonality, diversity and degree of integration to the market. The analysis included 774 monthly domestic budgets in 1995 and 798 monthly domestic budgets in 2005/06. Data on domestic budgets was monthly recorded by a family member. Comparative analysis showed that in a period of ten years, the net annual family income, which in 1994/95 was US$ 1,440, and 2005/06 was US$3,319, varied 130%. There was a correlation between monthly domestic budget and monthly water level variations in two, out of seven localities. The composition of domestic income also showed variation in communities that participated in resource management activities, such as fisheries management, handicraft production, and ecotourism.
