Land acquisitions for expansion of industries through expropriation have affected means of income generation of evicted people in Ethiopia. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and endogenous switching regression. Results showed that the expropriated households have lower total income and higher personal expenditures than the non-expropriated household’s. Besides, the total income of the expropriated households was significantly lower than that of the non-expropriated households. Thus, there should be a restoration mechanisms through the implementation of livelihood improvement fund; provision of share stock from company; training of expropriated people at financial accounting and management system, provision of infrastructure and service facilities, and creation of safe environment for the society.
