ANALYSIS OF RURAL QUALITY OF LIFE AND HEALTH: A SPATIAL APPROACH AgEcon
Bukenya, James O.; Gebremedhin, Tesfa G.; Schaeffer, Peter V..
This paper examines the relationship between quality of life, health and several socioeconomic variables. The analysis utilizes empirical data obtained from a survey questionnaire administered on a random sample of over 2000 residents in twenty-one counties in West Virginia, and spatial data obtained by geocoding the survey respondents' addressees. Quality of life is measured by a three-point categorical measure of overall satisfaction and an ordered probit model is used to examine the relationships. The empirical results are consistent with the theoretical predictions and indicate, for instance, that quality of life satisfaction increases with income and education while it decreases with unemployment.

Consumer Purchasing Behaviors and Attitudes toward Shopping at Public Markets AgEcon
Bukenya, James O.; Mukiibi, Michael L.; Molnar, Joseph J.; Siaway, Arthur T..
This paper identifies and empirically evaluates factors that explain the variations in consumers’ attitudes toward shopping at farmers markets in general and public markets in particular. The analysis draws on data from a telephone survey conducted in Jefferson County, Alabama. Logit model results point to several factors that seem to be strongly correlated with consumer purchasing behaviors and attitudes toward shopping at public markets, including income, education, age of household head, household size, and price and quality of produce. The insights gained from the study should help farmers increase the profitability of their operations and improve the likelihood that they will continue farming.

CONSUMER PURCHASING BEHAVIORS AND ATTITUDES TOWARD SHOPPING AT PUBLIC MARKETS IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA AgEcon
Mukiibi, Michael L.; Bukenya, James O.; Molnar, Joseph J.; Siaway, Arthur T.; Rigdon, L..
The purpose of this study was to obtain information that could help farmers increase the profitability of their operations and improve the likelihood that they would continue farming. The specific objective was to empirically evaluate which socio-demographic characteristics and purchasing behaviors encourage consumers to patronize farmers markets, in general and public markets, in particular. Data was drawn from telephone survey responses from 502 potential food shoppers in Alabama. Logit model results point to several factors that seem to be strongly correlated with consumer purchasing behaviors and attitudes toward shopping at public markets, including income, education, age of household head, household size, price and quality of produce.

DETERMINANTS OF CONSUMER ATTITUDES AND PURCHASE INTENTIONS WITH REGARD TO GM FOODS AgEcon
Bukenya, James O.; Wright, Natasha R..
Consumer acceptance of genetically modified (GM) products has become a vital factor in determining how prosperous the markets for GM products will be in the future. This phenomenon creates increased interest in understanding consumer attitudes and purchase intentions with regard to GM foods. Thus, this paper presents results based on a contingent valuation questionnaire designed to assess consumer knowledge, awareness and willingness to purchase GM-tomatoes in Huntsville metropolitan area, Alabama. The results suggest that attitudes and purchase decisions concerning GM foods are generally negative, highly complex and are based on several factors.

Do fluctuations in wine stocks affect wine prices? AgEcon
Bukenya, James O.; Labys, Walter C..
Globalization and the expansion of world wine trade have caused a wine boom that together with agricultural subsidies have made fluctuations in wine inventories a more critical issue. In the case of domestic and international wine markets, little is known about intertemporal inventory adjustments and how they relate to prices. We investigate possible dynamic relations between these variables in a time series context, so as to better understand how wine producers and traders can face growing price and financial volatility. Countries for whom meaningful data series could be constructed include: Argentina, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United States. The study begins by examining the empirical evidence on inventories in these markets and...

DYNAMICS OF LAND-USE CHANGE IN NORTH ALABAMA: IMPLICATIONS OF NEW RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AgEcon
Bukenya, James O..
The paper presents an analytical tool that could help in understanding the consequences of individual decisions associated with land use change by identifying their potential impacts to a community, county or region. The tool outlines the potential costs and benefits of land conversion activities to decision makers in Madison County, Alabama. The results show that the loss of agricultural lands erodes the county's ability to maintain revenue/cost equilibrium across the selected land use types, thus reducing the county's ability to provide current levels of service to residents.

Economics of Fish Marketing in Central Uganda: A Preliminary Analysis AgEcon
Bukenya, James O.; Hyuha, Theodora; Twinamasiko, Julius; Molnar, Joseph J..
The paper examines profitability and market performance of small-scale fish traders selected randomly from a cross-section of nine fish markets in four districts in Central Uganda. Data were collected through a structured questionnaire which was designed to solicit information on traders’ socio-economic characteristics, marketing characteristics, operating costs and returns, and problems associated with fish marketing in the study area. Percentages were used to describe the socio-economic characteristics, market characteristic and problems associated with fish marketing while gross profit and marketing performance models were used to determine profitability, marketing margin and operational efficiency, respectively. The results suggest that fish trade is...

Employment Growth in the Rural South: Do Sectors Matter? AgEcon
Bukenya, James O..
The paper contributes to the understanding of the role of economic sectors in employment growth by examining the extent to which sectoral employment influence employment development in the rural southeast United States over the period 1970 through 2007. The analysis employs two specifications of OLS regression to understand the role of economic sectors in employment growth processes. The first specification (number of jobs) explained approximately 36 percent of the variability in employment growth while the second specification (number of enterprises) explained roughly 43 percent of the variability over the studied period. Overall, the results suggest that although the share and the social role of agriculture are shrinking in almost all rural areas,...

Examining Income Convergence in Southern United States AgEcon
Gyawali, Buddhi Raj; Banerjee, Swagata (Ban); Bukenya, James O..
County-level data for 11 southern states were used to examine income convergence between 1980 and 2000. Ordinary least squares regression of logarithmic difference on average per capita income in 1980 and 2000 indicated conditional income convergence over the 20-year period. The estimated rate of income convergence was 3.82% per year. This convergence varied across the region based on the initial and changed conditions of population density, African-American population, employment, education, age structure, and travel time to work.

Examining Students’ Perceptions of Globalization and Study Abroad Programs at HBCUs AgEcon
Walker, Stevon; Bukenya, James O.; Thomas, Terrence.
The objective in this paper is to explore students’ perceptions of globalization and study abroad programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Recent statistics reveal that in spite of the current growth in the number of US students receiving academic credit for their overseas academic experience, less than one percent of undergraduate minority students participate in a study abroad program during their degree program. The analysis is based on survey questionnaires administered to 263 undergraduate minority students at Alabama A&M University. The questionnaire contained questions related to respondents’ demographic characteristics and likert-scale questions pertaining to students’ perceptions of globalization and studying abroad...

EXAMINING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SPRAWL AND NEIGHBORHOOD SOCIAL CONFLICTS: PRELIMINARY RESULTS AgEcon
Bukenya, James O.; Branch, Ericka; Wilson, Constance.
The objective of the paper is to examine the relationship between sprawl and neighborhood social conflicts between non-farm residents and farmers in north Alabama. To accomplish the objective, the paper employed a probit and ordinal probit regression models and analyzed 2000 census data and 2004 data from the multi-county survey of farmers in areas where sprawl has been identified to be a problem. The findings shed some light to the ongoing social conflict between non-farm residents and farmers in north Alabama.

EXAMINING THE ROLE OF SPATIALLY DISTRIBUTED AMENITIES IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN ALABAMA AgEcon
Nzaku, Kilungu; Bukenya, James O..
The paper extends the work of Deller et al (2001) by introducing a spatial component in a structural growth model to capture the role of spatially distributed variables using county-level data. The premise of the analysis is that what is true at a national level may provide a partial or misleading picture when we look at particular areas. Additionally, data available at the state level can often provide richer, more precise information than what is found at the national level, so we try to explore in more depth the role of spatially distributed amenities in economic development by examining, for instance the valuable Alabama countryside features such as natural habitats, scenic landscapes and warm weather amidst a poverty of infrastructure. The estimated...

Financial Feasibility of Simultaneous Production of Pine Sawlogs, Forage, and Meat Goats on Small Farms in Alabama: A Preliminary Analysis AgEcon
Broughton, Brandi; Bukenya, James O..
Small and limited resource farmers and landowners in the Alabama Black Belt region face many challenges as they seek to make their farms and forestlands profitable, productive and environmentally sustainable. A host of problems—farmland conversion, urbanization pressures, reductions in water quality and availability, soil erosion, irregular cash flows, and increased government regulation—make managing family farms or forestland a difficult task. In response to these challenges, many farmers and landowners are considering agroforestry as an opportunity to increase land productivity and to improve their cash flows by combining income from agriculture, forestry, and animal production on the same piece of land. The objective in this paper was to conduct...

Income Convergence and Growth in Alabama: Evidence from Sub-county Level Data AgEcon
Gyawali, Buddhi Raj; Fraser, Rory; Banerjee, Ban; Bukenya, James O..
1980 and 2000 Census Block Group (CBG) data were used to examine income convergence in all Alabama counties vis-à-vis Alabama’s Black Belt and Northwest regions. Though all three models demonstrated conditional income convergence, CBGs with smaller initial populations, smaller changes in African-American or dependent age populations had higher income changes.
