Abstract
With the development of economic in rural area, the increase number of labor transfer made farmers’ income more and more, and the energy consumption especially the coal has also changed constantly. Using the data of “Labor Migration and rural life energy survey” in Shannxi province, by the Tobit regression model to analyze that the influence of labor transfer on rural households coal consumption. The results show that the increasing number of labor transfer made the household coal consumption significantly decreased. The increase of labor transfer raises the household coal consumption; The proportion of labor transfer income to family income shows negative relation with the farmers’ coal consumption. Finally, some useful suggestions on how to raising farmers’ income and energy usage, thus promoting the continuous development of new countryside construction.
