Dimensions of the internal stratification of smallholders: insights from North Carolina Piedmont counties



Dimensions of the internal stratification of smallholders: insights from North Carolina Piedmont counties



Rural Sociology 50(2): 251-261



This paper examines the dimensions of internal stratification in a regionally specific sample of smallholders selected from three North carolina Piedmont counties. It differs from other smallholder samples in that most respondents are black, low income, and produce flue-cured tobacco. Nevertheless, data analysis reveals that the important dimensions of internal stratification are similar to those identified in previous research. Promax factor analysis shows that the major dimensions of internal stratification are scale of the farm enterprise, off-farm family labor, farm operator's age and education, and land tenure. Canonical discriminant analysis discloses the difference between smallholders who do and who do not own tobacco allotments. These results suggest the importance of incorporating both land tenure and choice of commodity into subsequent analyses of internal stratification among smallholders.
