Abstract: Logit regression was used to used to explain 1989 Multiple Peril Crop Insurance CMPCI) purchase decisions by Iowa crop farmers. The primary explanatory factor was whether MPCI had been purchased in 1988. Disaster payments and expectations that government would pass future disaster legislation were also found to reduce MPCI purchases.
