Black Farmers And The Economic And Social Conditions Where They Live: Some Policy Implications, Robert A. Hoppe, Herman Bluestone Dec 1987

Black Farmers And The Economic And Social Conditions Where They Live: Some Policy Implications, Robert A. Hoppe, Herman Bluestone

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Black farmers tend to live in southern counties where nonfarm employment opportunities are limited. These counties have grown slowly, much more slowly than southern metropolitan areas. In counties with concentrations of black farmers, blacks face severe economic and social conditions. They have a higher incidence of poverty, less education, and higher unemployment than other blacks in the South. In addition, blacks in these counties lag far behind whites in socioeconomic status. Economic growth and socioeconomic conditions in counties with black farmers vary considerably by region. Strategies to address the black farm crisis must consider both the characteristics of black farmers, …


Family Economic Organization And The Practice Of Subsistence Cropping: The Case Of Swaziland, Vernaline Watson Dec 1987

Family Economic Organization And The Practice Of Subsistence Cropping: The Case Of Swaziland, Vernaline Watson

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

An understanding of interrelationships between agronomic systems and the larger social organizational structures that sustain them is deemed crucial in devising appropriate strategies for increased crop production in Africa and other nonwestern settings. This paper focuses on Swaziland, in southern Africa, where effort is under way to promote surplus, commercial cropping among small-scale indigenous farmers. The persistence of subsistence type cropping by these farmers is shown to relate to traditional patterns of family economic organization, specifically division of labor and ties of economic interdependence among family members. Implications for agronomic policy are discussed.


The Rural South In Crisis: New Challenges For Rural Development, Lionel J. Beaulieu Dec 1987

The Rural South In Crisis: New Challenges For Rural Development, Lionel J. Beaulieu

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Rural society has been subjected to a series of forces during the course of the last two decades. Since the advent of the 1980s, the economic viability of many farm operations has been severely jeopardized. Although attention has been directed primarily to the Midwest farm belt, farm stress has, in many respects, been greater in the South than in any other region of the country. Moreover, the crisis is not strictly an agricultural one, for a large number of communities across the rural landscape, especially in the South, have been subjected to crises of their own. While the so-called "rural …


Is Structural Differentiation In Localities A Single Or Multidimensional Phenomenon? Alternative Measures And Relation To Population, Terry J. Tomazic, Robert L. Moxley Dec 1987

Is Structural Differentiation In Localities A Single Or Multidimensional Phenomenon? Alternative Measures And Relation To Population, Terry J. Tomazic, Robert L. Moxley

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Several measures of structural differentiation for various institutionalized areas of county development are compared. Evidence regarding the hypotheses that differentiation is a system-wide, unidimensional phenomenon and that it is related to population are investigated. Scalable dimensions are found to exist among county administrative characteristics, medical special ties, commercial services, and educational institutions. Guttman scales formed from the complexity of such development are often used along with population size as operational measures of locality differentiation. The four scales and population size are analyzed together using the Guttman-Lingoes Multiple Scalogram Analysis for three different points in time. It is concluded that the …


Rural Sociological Research In The South: An Historical Overview, Alvin L. Bertrand Dec 1987

Rural Sociological Research In The South: An Historical Overview, Alvin L. Bertrand

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The history of rural sociological research in the South is examined in terms of eras: Early History, The Depression Years, the War Years, the Great Society, and the New Rural Sociology. Although following national patterns, southern rural sociological research has maintained a regional character, attuned to the unique problems of the region.


Effects Of Alternate Income-Generating Strategies Of Small Farm Households: A Modified Farming Systems Approach, E. Yvonne Beauford, H. Max Miller Dec 1987

Effects Of Alternate Income-Generating Strategies Of Small Farm Households: A Modified Farming Systems Approach, E. Yvonne Beauford, H. Max Miller

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The growing dependence of small farm households upon nonfarm income involves important changes in sources of income, in levels and techniques of production, and in assessments of economic well-being. Based on a sample of small-farm households drawn from the four rural development regions of Georgia, this research examines these changes by focusing on household income, tracing patterns of decision-making related to its production, and attempts to evaluate the consequent economic well-being of small-farm households. The primary analytic technique is discriminant analysis, with 28 variables representing three elements of the farming system--the household, the household's resources and farming enterprises. Findings suggest …
