Abstract: The Rural Income Maintenance Experiment was the second of four major experiments to test the behavioral consequences of a universal income-conditioned cash transfer program. It followed closely its predecessor, the New Jersey Income Maintenance Experiment, in objectives and design. Of the four experiments, its principal uniqueness is that it is the only one focusing on the rural sector (farmers and those in towns of less than 2500).
