A Cross-Country Analysis of Household Responses to Adult Mortality in Rural Sub-Saharan Africa: Implications For HIV/AIDS Mitigation And Rural Development Policies. AgEcon
Mather, David; Donovan, Cynthia; Jayne, Thomas S.; Weber, Michael T.; Chapoto, Antony; Mazhangara, Edward; Bailey, Linda; Yoo, Kyeongwon; Yamano, Takashi; Mghenyi, Elliot W..
This paper summarizes and synthesizes across the results of a set of country studies on the effects of prime-age adult mortality on rural households in Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, and Zambia. Each study is based on large representative rural household surveys. These findings have implications for the design of efforts to mitigate some of the most important effects of rural adult mortality, and for key development policies and priorities.

Agricultural and Food Security Policy Analysis in Central America: Assessing Local Institutional Capacity, Data Availability, and Outcomes AgEcon
Tschirley, David L.; Flores, Luis; Mather, David.
Performance of the agricultural sector in developing countries is fundamental to ensuring robust and equitable economic growth and broad-based food security. Yet donor support to agricultural development in developing countries has declined continuously for 30 years. This same period saw dramatic deterioration in developing countries’ institutional capacity to provide services to their agricultural sectors. These trends may now be changing, due in part to the global food price crisis of 2007 and 2008 and concerns that it unleashed about the world’s ability to feed its poorest inhabitants. This paper reports on the results of a two week trip to Guatemala and Nicaragua made by Michigan State University’s Food Security Group. The purpose of the trip was to...

COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS OF CROSS-SECTIONAL HOUSEHOLD SURVEY DATA ON RURAL MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY: LESSONS LEARNED FROM INITIAL SURVEYS AgEcon
Mather, David; Donovan, Cynthia.
In southern Africa, HIV/AIDS is considered to be a critical factor conditioning rural economic development , exacerbating already difficult problems with climatic variability and poverty. In their efforts to use household surveys to obtain information on rural adult mortality and morbidity and their effects on rural household livelihoods, Michigan State University researchers and their local collaborators in the Ministries of Agriculture of Rwanda (MINAGRI) and Mozambique (MADER), have learned various lessons. Using household surveys to estimate the impact on the households requires careful attention to detail as well as skilled use of econometric tools. The difficult modeling issues involved in such estimation is not be discussed in this paper. Rather, we...

Determinants of Crop Income in Rural Mozambique, 2002-2005. AgEcon
Mather, David.
Crop income is the predominant source of income for most rural Mozambican households, accounting for 73% of rural household income on average in 2002, and greater than 80% of the total income of the poorest 40% of rural households. While the Government of Mozambique recognizes the need to improve agricultural productivity, there is little empirical evidence to date suggesting what mix of public and private assets would best foster improved agricultural productivity in rural Mozambique. This paper aims to better understand the determinants of household crop income in rural Mozambique, by using the TIA panel household survey of 2002-2005 to measure the impact of various private and public assets on crop income. We build upon Walker et al.’s (2004) analysis...

EX-ANTE ASSESSMENT OF THE IMPACT OF DISEASE-RESISTANT CUCURBITS GERMPLASM IN INDONESIA AND SOUTH AFRICA AgEcon
Mather, David; Bernsten, Richard H.; Maredia, Mywish K..
This report presents a summary of the results of an ex-ante socioeconomic assessment of the potential impacts of the improved cucurbits germplasm in Indonesia and South Africa. The cucurbits technology was developed by Cornell University through support from the USAID-funded Agricultural Biotechnology Support Project (ABSP). The objectives of these assessments were to: a) investigate the current status of the cucurbits subsector in Indonesia and South Africa; b) evaluate and quantify potential/projected benefits and costs of the cucurbits technology to seed companies, producers, and consumers in Indonesia and South Africa; and c) identify key issues that ABSP researchers, the ABSP management team, and USAID need to take into account in the development and...

Impact Assessment of Technologies That Mitigate Adverse Circumstances: The Case of Disease-Resistant Beans in Honduras AgEcon
Mather, David; Oehmke, James F..
Constructing appropriate counterfactual scenarios is an ongoing challenge for impact assessment of agricultural research. Using farm-level survey data from Honduras, this paper adapts the Heckman two-step procedure to construct the counterfactual to resistant variety (RV) bean yields by predicting imputed traditional variety yields of RV users.

MARKET ASSESSMENT MODELS FOR U.S. AGRICULTURAL EXPORTS AgEcon
Salvacruz, Joseph C.; Reed, Michael R.; Mather, David.
The growth rate of the United States' agricultural exports to its trading partners was predicted using some measures of each country's past macroeconomic conditions. The model which applies a five-year lag basis predicted better than that which utilizes a ten-year lag. Results show that the significant determinants of the growth rate of U.S. agricultural exports include the importing countries' GDP growth rate, agricultural self-sufficiency, population density, and distance from the United States.

Measuring the Impact of Public and Private Assets on Household Crop Income in Rural Mozambique, 2002-2005 AgEcon
Mather, David; Donovan, Cynthia; Boughton, Duncan.
This brief summarizes detailed analysis of the determinants of household crop income in rural Mozambique from 2002 to 2005. Increased crop income is associated with increases in household land area, use of animal traction, crop diversification into tobacco or cotton, access to market price information, and access to extension agents (for tobacco/cotton growers). Decreases in crop income are associated with drought. Results demonstrate that there are both public and private investments that can enhance farmers’ ability to increase crop income and avoid losses. Priority investments include: development and dissemination of drought-resistant varieties for maize and cassava, conservation farming, animal traction, market information, access to high-value crops...
