Income distribution in Austrian agriculture (empirical findings, theories and strategies concerning income policy)

Income disparities among farm households and agricultural policy Proceedings of the 14th Symposium of the European Association of Agricultural Economists EAAE; Disparites de revenue des familles d' agriculteurs et implications pour la politique agricole Actes du 14 eme Seminaire de l' Association Europeene des Economistes Agricoles AEEA September 3-5, 1986, Rennes, France: 325-338

Income distribution in Austrian agriculture (empirical findings, theories and strategies concerning income policy)

Disparities in income distribution amongst farmers in Austria are mainly determined by the high degree of inequality in farm incomes. Income from other sources (non-farm/off-farm income, transferred income) has a strong equalizing effect on distribution. The income of part-time holdings shows a high degree of inequality in farm income and off-farm income reflects the narrow income range for poorly qualified labour on the non-agricultural labour market.
