The Structure of Citizen Preferences for Government Soil Erosion Control Programs

Jeffrey Jordan () and Abdelmoneim H. Elnagheeb

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1992, vol. 24, issue 2, 73-82

Abstract: The 1990 Farm Bill contains several measures concerning soil erosion caused by U.S. farmers. Data from a nationwide survey of people conerning their attitudes toward agriculture were used to examine the structure of respondents' preferences for government support-policies to combat soil erosion. Estimates of the influence of socio-economic and demographic variables on policy preferences were computed using a multiple-indicator model. Results show more support for the regulation of soil erosion, including laws and fines, than for government financial support.
