Agricultural Profits and Farm Household Wealth: A Farm-level Analysis Using Repeated Cross Sections AgEcon
Blank, Steven C.; Erickson, Kenneth W.; Nehring, Richard F.; Hallahan, Charles B..
This study examines the relationship between agricultural profits and farm household wealth across locations and farm sizes in U.S. agriculture. A multiperiod household model is used to develop hypotheses for testing. Results indicate that farmland has out-performed nonfarm investments over the past decade. Thus, households may want to keep their farmland to build wealth, even if it requires them to earn off-farm income. The analysis implies that decision will be made based on farm household wealth factors having little to do with agriculture.

Gender, wealth, and participation in community groups in Meru Central District, Kenya AgEcon
Davis, Kristin E.; Negash, Martha.
A mixed-methods, multiple-stage approach was used to obtain data on how gender and wealth affected participation in community groups in Meru, Kenya, and how men and women farmers obtain and diffuse agricultural information. Research techniques included participant observation, documentary analysis, semi-structured interviews, social mapping, group timelines, and structured questionnaires. Dairy-goat farmer groups were interviewed for the study. Qualitative data provided baseline information, and helped in the formulation of research questions. Quantitative data were analyzed using contingency tables, descriptive statistics, correlations, tests of significance, and regression. Factors that affected participation in different types of groups included...

INCOME, WEALTH, AND THE ECONOMIC WELL-BEING OF FARM HOUSEHOLDS AgEcon
Mishra, Ashok K.; El-Osta, Hisham S.; Morehart, Mitchell J.; Johnson, James D.; Hopkins, Jeffrey W..
Agricultural policy is rooted in the 1930s notion that providing transfers of money to the farm sector translates into increased economic well-being of farm families. This report shows that changes in income for the farm sector or for any particular group of farm businesses do not necessarily reflect changes confronting farm households. Farm households draw income from various sources, including off-farm work, other businesses operated, and —increasingly — nonfarm investments. Likewise, focus on a single indicator of well-being, like income, overlooks other indicators such as the wealth held by the household and the level of consumption expenditures for health care, food, housing, and other items. Using an expanded definition of economic well-being, we...

Migrant Labor Markets and the Welfare of Rural Households in the Developing World: Evidence from China AgEcon
de Brauw, Alan; Giles, John.
In this paper, we examine the impact of reductions in barriers to migration on the consumption of rural households in China. We find that increased migration from rural villages leads to significant increases in consumption per capita, and that this effect is stronger for poorer households within villages. Household income per capita and non-durable consumption per capita both increase with out-migration, and increase more for poorer households. We also establish a causal relationship between increased out-migration and investment in housing and durable goods assets, and these effects are also stronger for poorer households. We do not find robust evidence, however, to support a connection between increased migration and investment in productive activity....

Precautionary wealth among U.S farm households AgEcon
Dedah, Cheikhna O.; Mishra, Ashok K..
Using a cross sectional farm-level data we find that farm households who face higher income uncertainty save more and accumulate more wealth. Precautionary savings is about 6 percent of the total farm household wealth. In addition to precautionary saving, and consistent with theory we found that the age, education, occupation, and the number of acres operated are all important factors that influence wealth accumulation by U.S farm households.

Supply Response of Crops in the Southeast AgEcon
Smith, Rachel K.; Duffy, Patricia A.; Novak, James L.; Wilson, Norbert L.W..
An econometric model was used to estimate the supply response of corn, cotton, and soybeans in the Southeast United States. The analysis includes state-level data from 1991-2005 for Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia, taking into account the effect of wealth, revenue risk, and farm program provisions. Estimated elasticities were low and many parameters were not statistically significant.

Wild meat consumption on São Tomé Island, West Africa: implications for conservation and local livelihoods Ecology and Society
Rego, Francisco; Centro de Ecologia Aplicada 'Prof. Baeta Neves', Instituto Superior de Agronomia, Tapada da Ajuda, Lisboa, Portugal; fcastrorego3@gmail.com; Fa, John E.; Manchester Metropolitan University; CIFOR; jfa949@gmail.com.
The importance of wild meats for rural people is well documented in tropical forests worldwide. However, the case of oceanic islands remains relatively poorly studied. We assess the contribution made by wild meats to the diets of rural inhabitants in the Island of São Tomé, characterize the relative importance of native and introduced fauna, and discuss the implications of wild meat consumption on rural livelihoods and on the conservation of the resident fauna. Using semistructured interviews, we assessed animal protein consumption in 10 communities (716 household-weeks), around the vicinity of the island’s main protected area, Obô Natural Park. Fish and the introduced West African giant snail (Archachatina marginata)...
