The Future Of Farming: Regional Variation In Opinions From Louisiana And The Nation, Alan Acock, Ann Dellenbarger Dec 1989

The Future Of Farming: Regional Variation In Opinions From Louisiana And The Nation, Alan Acock, Ann Dellenbarger

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Findings from a 1987 telephone survey of Louisiana residents are reported. Opinions of 701 persons were gathered using a weighted probability sample across the state. Socioeconomic and demographic characteristics were used to identify regional clusters of parishes to determine differences among regions of the state. The results point to a paradox. While the clusters exhibited extreme variation in socioeconomic and demographic characteristics, there was surprising similarity in the responses regarding opinions on agricultural issues. Support for agriculture was uniformly strong across all regions, with over 80 percent of respondents agreeing that both the state and federal governments should do a …


Sociology And Biotechnology: Challenges And Opportunities, Thomas J. Hoban Iv Dec 1989

Sociology And Biotechnology: Challenges And Opportunities, Thomas J. Hoban Iv

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Sociologists have traditionally been concerned with technological change. We now find renewed research interest in the social impacts and risks of biotechnology. Many public and key opinion leaders recognize that closer attention must be paid to tradeoffs, uncertainties, and negative consequences related to biotechnology. Sociologists have a number of important roles to play in ensuring that the benefits of biotechnology outweigh the potential risks. This paper examines several important issues about agricultural biotechnology that have not yet received adequate attention from sociologists. The nature of biotechnology as an innovation and as a risky technology is examined. Particular attention is aid …


Revitalizing Rural America: Focus On Rural Youth, E. Yvonne Beauford Dec 1989

Revitalizing Rural America: Focus On Rural Youth, E. Yvonne Beauford

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The youth comprise a significant component of the rural population. They are rarely considered in policies, programs, or strategies for the revitalization of rural America. This paper focuses on rural youth as a potential dynamic element of change in rural America. The questions addressed are: how can we help to motivate more young people to consider careers in agriculture; and how can we improve our abilities to retain and attract talented young people to rural areas. A selected review of the relevant literature suggests that current factors influencing choice of an agriculture major differ from the past and that migration …


Determinants Of Work Status Among Heads Of Poor Families In The South, Elizabeth S. Morrissey Dec 1989

Determinants Of Work Status Among Heads Of Poor Families In The South, Elizabeth S. Morrissey

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Increases in the incidence of working-age persons outside the labor force and poor female-headed families have focused national attention on that portion of the working-age poor who do not work. This study examines the role of selected demographic, family and family income variables on the work status (working versus nonworking) of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan heads of poor families in the South. The findings indicate that both age and receipt of public welfare in the previous year exert significant influences on working, regardless of residence. By residence, race is a more important predictor of work status in metropolitan than nonmetropolitan areas, …


Family Type And Familism In Contemporary Appalachia, James K. Crissman Dec 1989

Family Type And Familism In Contemporary Appalachia, James K. Crissman

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Residents of Appalachia have long been considered isolated, "old-fashioned," and "traditional" when compared with the rest of the United States. Such terms as "yesterday's people" have been utilized to describe present-day Appalachians, and romanticized ideas abound as to the contemporary Appalachian family. It is still quite often pictured as extended and highly familistic. This research consisted of a study of 675 rural families throughout the state of West Virginia, which is the only state entirely within the Appalachian area. The interviewees tended to live in nuclear families. They did not display the expected degree of familism. Familism is related to …

A Gender Comparison Of Former Agricultural Students' Employment Experiences, John K. Thomas, Kathy L. Schiflett Dec 1989

A Gender Comparison Of Former Agricultural Students' Employment Experiences, John K. Thomas, Kathy L. Schiflett

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Deepening shortages of highly qualified scientists, managers, and technical professionals seriously threaten American agriculture. The purpose of this study is to investigate the degree to which gender differences exist in former agricultural students' acquiring employment in the agricultural industry after leaving college. Data were obtained using a 30 percent random sample (n=1,730) of students enrolled in 1977 at two major land-grant universities in the Southwest. A mail survey conducted in late 1986 resulted in 707 respondents. Male out-numbered female respondents 3 to 1, which was approximately the same enrollment ratio in 1977. Findings of the survey indicate that 9 out …

Economics Faculty Scholarship

The objective of this study is to estimate the economic impact of the proposed Yakima/Klickitat Production Project on the local economies of the Yakima and Klickitat subbasins. The project, when operating at planned maximum production, will augment the total number of salmon and steelhead returning to the subbasins by 77,600 and will increase the sustainable terminal harvest by 55,160. These estimates do not include fish harvested in the ocean or in the mainstem Columbia. In addition to evaluating the impacts of the construction, operations and maintenance, experimentation and monitoring, and harvest activities described in the Draft Environmental Assessment (Bonneville Power …
