With the overall victory against poverty and the deepening of the strategy of rural revitalization, the land transfer in mountainous and hilly areas has attracted increasing attention from all walks of life. Based on the endogenous perspective of peasant household endowment, this paper discusses the relationship between land transfer and household characteristics of peasant households, and constructs a variable index system affecting the decision-making intention of peasant households on land transfer using the questionnaire data of 333 peasant households in Rongchang District of Chongqing. Through Logistic regression model analysis, it is found that farmers' willingness to make decisions on land transfer depends on their family endowment characteristics to a certain extent. The significance of influencing factors is ranked as farmer gender > proportion of crop income > farmer age > per capita cultivated land area > degree of cultivated land fragmentation, indicating that men still play a leading role in family decision-making. The age of the head of the household, the proportion of the household planting income, the per capita cultivated land area of the household, the degree of cultivated land fragmentation and the decision intention of land transfer have a strong inverse relationship. Therefore, in order to build a stable long-term land circulation relationship, the policy design should pay attention to make up for the shortcomings in the endowment of rural households, and promote the improvement of their economic status or development capacity through the income distribution and sharing mechanism.

Key words: peasant household, land circulation, decision-making willingness, influencing factors
