Are Friendly Farmers Environmentally Friendly? Environmental Awareness as a Social Capital Outcome AgEcon
Munasib, Abdul B.A.; Jordan, Jeffrey L..
This paper examines the hypothesis that social capital at the individual level affects environmentally friendly practices. Social capital represents the social connectedness of the individual. An individual with higher social capital is more likely to have better exposure and access to information about the importance of environmentally friendly practices. We study sustainable agricultural practices among Georgia farmers and examine whether their social capital levels have any effect on, (1) their adoption of sustainable agricultural practices, and (2) the extent to which they engage in these practices. Using the Georgia Social Capital Survey our measure of social capital is associational activities. We address a number of econometric issues: potential...

Community Development and Local Social Capital AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L.; Munasib, Abdul B.A..
While a substantial amount of research has been devoted to showing what social capital does, research explaining social capital itself lags behind. In this paper we examine whether local economic development can explain the variation in social capital across various geographical clusters in the state of Georgia. The findings show that even after accounting for various demographic and economic characteristics, the HDI explains the variation in a number of social capital levels (especially those measured by associational involvement) across various geographical clusters in the state of Georgia.

Community Development and Local Social Capital AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L.; Anil, Bulent; Munasib, Abdul B.A..
While a substantial amount of research has been devoted to showing what social capital does, research explaining social capital itself lags behind. The literature has a long tradition of examining the effect of social capital on local economic growth and development. In this paper we examine whether local economic development can explain the variation in social capital across various geographical clusters in the state of Georgia. We begin by devising a measurement tool, a Human Development Index (HDI), to measure community development. Our social capital measure includes associational memberships, voluntary activities, and philanthropy obtained from the Georgia Social Capital Survey. The findings show that even after accounting for various demographic and...

CONNECTING THE SOURCES AND CONSEQUENCES OF SOCIAL CAPITAL FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L..
The objective of this paper is to investigate motives and outputs of social capital with a survey instrument to distinguish self, sympathy and norms as motivating behavior and to correlate that behavior with the consequences of social capital in terms of community and associational activity.

Constructing a Human Development Index for Georgia's Counties AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L..
The purpose of this paper is to construct a Human Development Index (HDI) for each of Georgia's 159 counties. The index includes education, employment, and housing variables. Data are from the 2000 Census collected by the State of Georgia Office of Planning and Budget. Patterned after the work done at the United Nations Development Programme, the HDI focuses on variables important for community development activities. The index can be used for a variety of purposes in examining levels of development throughout Georgia.

DIFFERENCES IN CONTINGENT VALUATION ESTIMATES FROM REFERENDUM AND CHECKLIST QUESTIONS AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L.; Elnagheeb, Abdelmoneim H..
This article compares willingness-to-pay (WTP) estimates from an actual survey using a checklist question regarding WTP for groundwater quality improvements to WTP estimates that would have been obtained had a single-bounded referendum (SBR) or a double-bounded referendum (DBR) question been asked. Results indicate differences among estimates from the three types of question formats. There was a loss of statistical efficiency of parameter and WTP estimates when moving from the checklist and DBR formats to the SBR format. WTP estimates from the SBR question were more sensitive to sample size and model specification than the others.

ECONOMIC PERCEPTIONS AND AGRICULTURAL POLICY PREFERENCES AgEcon
Variyam, Jayachandran N.; Jordan, Jeffrey L..
Previous research indicates that policy perceptions are important in explaining individual preferences for government expenditures. In this article we study agricultural policy preferences using national survey data containing several policy perception measurements. A model linking preferences to perceptions through an underlying unobservable variable is estimated and assessed using the bootstrap. The perception that farmers receive too much government assistance is dominant, affecting preferences negatively. Perceptions concerning the importance of agriculture to the economy, financial stress and profitability, and farming as an occupation are also important. Some selective preference for family farm support is indicated with implications for efforts to...

Estimating Child Time Preferences: Aiding Rural Schools in Improving Human Capital Formation AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L.; Castillio, Marco; Ferraro, Paul J.; Petrie, Regan.
We experimentally investigate the distribution of children's time preferences along gender and racial lines. Black boys have significantly larger discount rates than any other demographic group. Discount rates among Black girls are comparable to rates among White girls. Although White boys exhibit higher discount rates than girls, the difference is small and not statistically significant. These results are robust to alternative measures of patience and to regression analyses that control for socio-economic background and school performance. The measured differences in discount rates are large. All things equal, a Black boy requires expected returns to education 13-15% higher than Black girls to compensate for his larger discounting of future payoffs....

ESTIMATING IMPLICIT MARGINAL PRICES OF QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF TOMATOES AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L.; Shewfelt, R.L.; Prussia, Stanley E.; Hurst, W.C..
A hedonic price function is developed for estimating the implicit prices for selected quality characteristics of fresh tomatoes at three points in the marketing season. The estimation of this function, proposed as a method of evaluating change in the post-harvest system, is accomplished using a flexible functional form. Those quality characteristics that most affect the price of tomatoes can help determine the economic feasibility of alternative handling techniques or new technologies.

Estimating the Willingness-to-Pay for Water in Georgia AgEcon
Elnagheeb, Abdelmoneim H.; Jordan, Jeffrey L..
In this paper, data from a 1992 telephone survey of Georgia residents were used to study people’s willingness-to-pay (WTP) for water as a commodity. A dichotomous contingent valuation method was employed to estimate the marginal scarcity rent of water. Results indicated that the average WTP was $15.10 above the current monthly water cost, or about 81 percent of current bills. The aggregate WTP for all of Georgia was estimated to be nearly $393 million, suggesting that water is underpriced.

Evaluating Water Conservation Strategies and Policies AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L..
The four papers presented at this invited session examine various ways that economic analysis can be used to examine issues of water conservation strategies and policies. Three of the four are focused on water issues in Texas, and one examines a private insurance contract scheme for irrigation scheduling using Georgia weather and water data. All four papers are well written and interesting, but all four illustrated the limits of conventional economic analysis in its ability to shed light on public policy. This is particularly the case in the heavy reliance on economic efficiency analysis that is employed in the papers.

Farmers' Choice of Using Sustainable Agricultural Practices: A Social Capital Approach AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L..
This paper explores, in the context of social capital theory, why farmers choose to use sustainable agricultural practices. The hypothesis tested is that farmers who exhibit higher levels of social capital will adopt such practices more often than those who exhibit lower levels of social capital.

FORECASTING RAIL FREIGHT TRAFFIC FROM A STATEWIDE ECONOMIC MODEL AgEcon
Jordan, Jeffrey L.; Thompson, Stanley R..
The purpose of this study was to develop a procedure for estimating future rail traffic that considers the relationship between the structure of a state's economy and rail freight traffic. The study expands the use of input-output models to include the forecasting of transportation demand. Georgia and Michigan case studies were used to test the forecasting capability of the input-output procedure. For Michigan's 1980 rail movements, the model predicted rail traffic to within 0.15 percent of actual traffic. For 1979 Georgia traffic, the model predicted within 4.3 percent of actual traffic. Various statistical tests indicate that the procedure was effective in forecasting rail freight traffic.
