Measuring the disparities in the welfare changes of rural households after the transfer of agricultural land through different employment channels, this study analyzes the differential impact of employment channels on the welfare changes of rural households at different percentiles post-land transfer. The aim is to provide a scientific basis for guiding land transfer, precisely assisting various types of land-transferring households, and ensuring effective reemployment support for farmers. Employing a combination of questionnaire surveys and a fuzzy comprehensive evaluation model, the analysis reveals an improvement in the welfare conditions of land-transferring households after land transfer. Disparities exist in the welfare changes of land-transferring households across different employment channels. The study suggests the following recommendations: promoting land transfer in a reasonable manner to boost the welfare of farmers, advancing rural industrial revitalization, enhancing the rural employment system, and providing targeted assistance to various types of farming households to elevate their overall welfare.
