Selective Migration And The Educational "Brain Drain" From The Lower Mississippi Delta Region In 1975-80, Donald E. Voth, Molly Killian, Frank L. Farmer Dec 1994

Selective Migration And The Educational "Brain Drain" From The Lower Mississippi Delta Region In 1975-80, Donald E. Voth, Molly Killian, Frank L. Farmer

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Using a unique source of information about migration, this paper calculates the rates of net migration by age and educational level for the Lower Mississippi Delta region for the period of 1975-80, compares different categories of counties in the Delta, and compares Delta areas with non-Delta areas of the seven Delta states. It shows substantial losses of more highly educated persons, especially the young, from all rural counties, but especially for the core rural Delta counties.


Changing The Health Care System: Opinions Of Rural And Urban Residents, F. Dale Parent, Bonnie L. Lewis Dec 1994

Changing The Health Care System: Opinions Of Rural And Urban Residents, F. Dale Parent, Bonnie L. Lewis

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper examines the opinions of rural and urban residents toward a full health care system provided by the government. The data used in the study come from a statewide poll conducted by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. Because of a greater need for health care reform in rural areas, it was assumed that rural Louisianians might be more supportive of a government health care system than their urban counterparts. However, analysis of the data indicates that a person's residence had no statistically significant effect on attitudes toward government sponsored health care.


Community Impacts From A Temporary Military Deployment: The Case Of Fort Stewart, Ga., Warren Kriesel, Gina L. Gilbreath Dec 1994

Community Impacts From A Temporary Military Deployment: The Case Of Fort Stewart, Ga., Warren Kriesel, Gina L. Gilbreath

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The rural South has long been a popular location for the installment of military bases. Small Southern communities around these installations have experienced many social and economic changes due to operational changes in the base. Even the slightest alterations have a ripple effect on residents who rely on the base for local economic stability. Although many studies have examined the impacts associated with military base closures, this paper addresses a related but not identical problem. Using a combined rural sociological and agricultural and applied economic perspective, an analysis is made which examines the local social and economic disruption caused by ...


The Management Of Hunting Leases By Rural Landowners, John K. Thomas, Clark E. Adams, John F. Thigpen Iii Dec 1994

The Management Of Hunting Leases By Rural Landowners, John K. Thomas, Clark E. Adams, John F. Thigpen Iii

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Most of the land in Texas is privately owned and is an important as a source for hunting recreation. Profit maximization theory (PMT) and economic behavioral theory (EBT) were used to explain differences in the net incomes of Texas landowners who sold hunting leases during the 1989-90 hunting season. In 1990, 4,621 landowners who were licensed to sell hunting leases by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department responded to a mail survey. Findings indicated that the statewide median net lease income was $1,100, few landowners considered their leasing operations as businesses, and few practiced intensive management of their ...


Antecedents Of Infant Mortality: An Analysis Of Risk Factors In Rural And Urban Arkansas, Shannon M. Holman, Frank L. Farmer, Russell S. Kirby, Bruce L. Dixon Dec 1994

Antecedents Of Infant Mortality: An Analysis Of Risk Factors In Rural And Urban Arkansas, Shannon M. Holman, Frank L. Farmer, Russell S. Kirby, Bruce L. Dixon

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This research examines the relationship between social and biological characteristics of the infant and mother and the probability of infant survival through the first year of life. The research also includes a consideration of the influence of residence (rural vs. urban). Employing linked birth and death certificate data for Arkansas (1985-1989), a logit model was estimated to assess the impact of social and biological factors on the probability of survival. The results indicate that metropolitan residence is positively associated with infant survival, but only at a marginal significance level. Other notable results include the importance of prenatal care and a ...


Farm Families Moving To Town: An Analysis Of Farm Population Declines, Don E. Albrecht Dec 1994

Farm Families Moving To Town: An Analysis Of Farm Population Declines, Don E. Albrecht

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Recent census data indicate that, in all regions of the country, an increasingly large proportion of individuals and families operating farms in the United States are choosing to live in urban and rural communities rather than on the farmstead. In this paper, hypotheses are developed and tested to help explain and understand this phenomenon, and the variations that exist from county to county. County-level data from the 1978 and 1987 Census of Agriculture and the 1980 and 1990 Census of Population are analyzed. It was found that counties with larger proportions of farm families living in the community include those ...


Assessing Housing Affordability In Rural Georgia, Carol B. Meeks, Anne L. Sweaney Dec 1994

Assessing Housing Affordability In Rural Georgia, Carol B. Meeks, Anne L. Sweaney

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Rural areas and the rural South in particular have unique characteristics that render inappropriate many urban-oriented housing affordability approaches, delivery systems, and programs. In addition, a lack of data for smaller communities makes accurate assessments of the housing stock difficult. This paper explores factors that influence housing affordability. A methodology is developed that policy makers in local communities can use with volunteers to collect reliable data and to develop a local housing agenda which meets community needs. Regression analysis using data from four rural Georgia communities reveals that housing quality plays a role in housing expenditures. The paper concludes with ...


Dependence In The Rural South, Libby V. Morris Dec 1994

Dependence In The Rural South, Libby V. Morris

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This article re-introduces the concept of dependence into rural studies and shows that age-related dependence varies greatly by race and location across the South. Youth, elder, and total dependence ratios were calculated for blacks and whites and by metropolitan and nonmetropolitan locations for Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. Total, youth, and elder dependence are higher in nonmetropolitan areas. The highest dependence is in nonmetropolitan counties with high percentages of black population. Total dependence is higher for blacks than whites. This difference is primarily because of the much higher dependence ratios for black youth. Elder dependence is highest in nonmetropolitan counties, and ...


Occupational Attainment And Earnings Among Agricultural Students In The South, Andrew A. Zakeri Dec 1994

Occupational Attainment And Earnings Among Agricultural Students In The South, Andrew A. Zakeri

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Using panel data from a sample of agriculture graduates from Southern land-grant universities, this paper examines factors associated with occupational attainment and income earnings among agricultural students after graduation. Findings indicate that college major and gender were the strongest predictors of occupational attainment, while educational attainment was the best single predictor of income earnings. Compared with their peers with only baccalaureate degrees, highly trained agricultural students earned higher income on their first full-time jobs after leaving college. Policy implications of the findings are discussed.


Changes In Plant Variety Protection, Neil Harl Dec 1994

Changes In Plant Variety Protection, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Since enactment in 1970, the Plant Variety Protection Act had received relatively little attention until the litigation relating to the "saved seed" exception commenced in 1991. That case, Asgrow Seed Co. v. Winterboer, is before the U.S. Supreme Court with a decision expected some time in 1995.

The Congress has now passed and the President has signed legislation amending the 1970 act which reverses, statutorily, the U.S. Court of Appeals decision in Asgrow Seed Co. v. Winterboer and makes several other changes in the Plant Variety Protection Act.
