Abstract

The reduction in the quantity of labor available to agriculture has been a topic of substantial interest. This article focuses on factors affecting the rate of reduction in the labor force, with particular attention to income as an influential variable. The study differs from others in the form of the models and in the type of data (county) used in testing them. The most interesting finding is that those in farm work were responsive to income differences, as neoclassical economic theory suggests, but that their response was not dramatic.
