AGRICULTURAL ECONOMISTS' PERFORMANCE AND PAY: AN ANALYSIS OF LAND GRANT UNIVERSITY SALARIES AgEcon
Srivastava, Lorie; Thilmany, Dawn D..
The objective of the 1998 Tracking Survey conducted by the CWAE was to examine differences in the professional experiences of female agricultural economists, including the salary study presented here. A comparative analysis presents detailed frequency, performance and pay measures for all types of employers. The econometric analysis of salary focuses more specifically on agricultural economists currently employed in the Land Grant System. The importance of salary to an individual, their rank, experience, refereed journal articles and book chapters appear to have the greatest effect on salary. Although there is no clear gender bias, the number and age of children has negative implications on the salary earned by women.

An Empirical Analysis of Market Integration and Efficiency for U.S. Fresh Tomato Markets AgEcon
Padilla-Bernal, Luz E.; Thilmany, Dawn D.; Loureiro, Maria L..
Fresh tomato trade between the United States and Mexico grew significantly during the 1990s. Moreover, major structural changes in U.S. produce marketing channels increase the complexity of conducting analyses to delineate the impact of liberalized trade. Following the work of Barrett, Li, and Bailey, this study implements a mixed distribution to examine spatial-price relationships between major shipping points and terminal markets for Mexican imported, and Florida and California tomatoes. Although markets are often efficiently integrated, results suggest strategic pricing and product shipments may exist and vary among terminal markets in Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago.

Animal Disease Economic Impacts: A Survey of Literature and Typology of Research Approaches AgEcon
Pritchett, James G.; Thilmany, Dawn D.; Johnson, Kamina K..
Animal diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) are a threat to the animal product marketing sector and the broader economy. Policy makers and industry stakeholders seek a means of assessing a disease threat's economic impacts when evaluating prevention and mitigation measures. But, differences in the focus of the impact analysis (production level, market prices, welfare), level of analysis (geographically, marketing phase) and proposed policy alternatives all influence the analytical approach. This paper surveys previous research, focusing on methodological approaches and results. Drawing from past research and future economic data needs, a typology is developed to guide researchers when defining the scope and policy alternatives of various...

CONSUMER PREFERENCE FOR SPECIFIC ATTRIBUTES IN NATURAL BEEF PRODUCTS AgEcon
Grannis, Jennifer L.; Hooker, Neal H.; Thilmany, Dawn D..
This study examines the willingness to pay for a locally-produced, natural beef product in the Intermountain West. In addition to presenting market shares at various prices, this study examines the relevance of several production characteristics, to determine how important they are to consumers, especially the target group willing to pay premium prices. Concern about hormones is consistently higher than other animal- and environmentally-friendly attributes, while concern about local production is the lowest among the respondents. As would be expected, the average concern about each of these characteristics increased among the group most willing to pay a premium for natural beef.

Consumer Responses to Recent BSE Events AgEcon
Pritchett, James G.; Johnson, Kamina K.; Thilmany, Dawn D.; Hahn, William F..
Recent bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, a.k.a. mad cow disease) discoveries in Canadian and U.S. beef cattle have garnered significant media attention, which may have changed consumers’ meat-purchasing behavior. Consumer response is hypothesized and tested within a meat demand system in which response is measured using single-period dummy variables, longer-term dummy variables, and media indices that count positive and negative meat-industry articles. Parameters are estimated using retail scanner data, and cross-species price elasticities are calculated. Results suggest that the BSE events negatively impacted ground beef and chuck roasts, while positively impacting center-cut pork chop demand. Dummy variables explained the variation in meat-budget...

Determinants of Population Change in Regional Economies: A Study of the Colorado Front Range AgEcon
Scorsone, Eric; Thilmany, Dawn D.; Davies, Stephen P..
Households and businesses are distributed across regional economies based on a number of factors including location-specific natural and fiscal amenities and local and regional employment conditions. Very different hypotheses are proposed in past research to explain the determinants of this spatial distribution. In particular, it is argued that households must weigh the benefits of potential amenities against the costs of employment losses, lower wages or higher housing prices. The relative strength of these two categories determines the potential for government intervention in the market. This research project analyzes this issue in the specific case of the Denver labor market area. This region has experienced large swings in economic activity over...

Direct Marketing of Fresh Produce: Understanding Consumer Interest in Product and Process-Based Attributes AgEcon
Thilmany, Dawn D.; Bond, Jennifer Keeling; Bond, Craig A..
This study employs factor and cluster analysis techniques to explore a national-level dataset of fresh produce consumers. Specifically, we characterize the major sources of variation in the dataset using four internally-derived factors, and then use these factors to split the data into five consumer segments using cluster analysis. We then examine the major differences in preferences and willingness to pay across these groups with respect to various produce attributes, production processes, and production locality. We explore the traditional concerns such as taste, purity, and freshness, but also account for civic agricultural issues such as local production and production systems which tend to be associated with higher levels of environmental quality...

Eat Your Fruits and Veggies: Who Informs Consumers about Produce Choices and Nutrition? AgEcon
Nurse-Schorre, Gretchen; Thilmany, Dawn D.; Keeling Bond, Jennifer J.; Bond, Craig A.; Bunning, Marisa.
Food consumption trends in the U.S. may be affected by and/or contributing to the growth in food- and nutrition-related information channels. Information channels are increasing in number, as are the sources (McCluskey & Swinnnen 2004) that provide information. This paper examines consumer perceptions of the relative desirability of various food and nutrition information sources and education methods as well as the relative credibility of various food and nutrition sources. Using data from a 2006 nationwide consumer survey, comparative summary statistics show significant differences between information delivery methods and sources that consumers use and trust. By understanding how consumers receive and value information we can better target consumer...

Exploring Spillover Effect of Public Investments in Conservation Programs onto Agritourism AgEcon
Wilson, Joshua; Thilmany, Dawn D..
Public investment in farmland-based conservation, such as the Conservation Reserve and Wetlands Reserve Programs (CRP and WRP, respectively), have improved the environmental state of many lands. In this study, we posit that CRP and WRP may contribute to a new farm income stream based on the enhanced recreational opportunities perceived by tourists on farmland that has richer wildlife and fish habitat. Using a new field from the 2002 Ag Census, agritourism (recreational activities as hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing) is modeled as a function of place characteristics (natural amenities and urban influence), scale of agricultural lands and sales and CRP/WRP investments in a cross-county analysis of the West.

FARM LABOR DEMAND: A META-REGRESSION ANALYSIS OF WAGE ELASTICITIES AgEcon
Espey, Molly; Thilmany, Dawn D..
Previous research on farm labor demand is reviewed to empirically explore what has been learned over the past 50 years. Following the example of Hamermesh, studies were differentiated by numerous factors. A meta-regression analysis of estimated demand wage elasticities was conducted to more clearly identify any systematic factors that influence such estimates. Results of the analysis show that the magnitudes of own-price demand elasticities are affected by differences including type and area of labor market, methodology, and the time period covered by the data. Understanding variations due to model specification is important when interpreting current and future agricultural labor and policy research.

FARM LABOR TRENDS AND MANAGEMENT IN WASHINGTON STATE AgEcon
Thilmany, Dawn D..
The Washington State farm labor market is a pivotal point in the western migrant stream. Farm employers argue that the seasonal labor market has tightened as a result of changes in immigration policy and economic conditions, even as they increase acreage of labor-intensive crops and the demand for labor. Yet, one could argue that a sufficient labor supply is available if workers are offered competitive wages and sufficient hours. To address some of these questions and issues, this study explores whether employer-specific factors (commodity, region, size, and management practices) influence worker turnover and the ability of employers to attract return workers.

Local and Organic: Substitutes or Complements? An In-Store Evaluation of Labels for Apples AgEcon
Costanigro, Marco; Kroll, Stephan; Thilmany, Dawn D.; Nurse, Gretchen.
Over the past two decades, consumer demand for niche products has grown substantially. The primary objective of this paper is to disentangle the value consumers place on two prominent food claims, organic and local (defined as Colorado Proud in this study) as they relate to fresh produce. Using primary data from a choice experiment conducted in a grocery store that has conducted co-promotional efforts with the Colorado Proud program, we found the value of the “local” claims trumps that of “organic” in apples. However, the difference in results between the experiments that offered participants either one- or two-pounds is far more pronounced, illustrating how scaling may influence estimates in such market-based research.
