Differences in earning, labour inputs, decision-making and perception of development between farm and market: a case study in Zambia

Differences in earning, labour inputs, decision-making and perception of development between farm and market: a case study in Zambia

Eastern Africa Economic Review 5(2): 92-103

This study comparing farm and market women grew out of a larger study documenting the labour inputs of males and females in Zambian small scale farming (farms of 25 acres or less) and the contributions of females to household incomes. A sample of 112 farm and 30 market women was drawn in three areas of Zambia, differentiated by levels of agricultural development in 1982, Mpika in the Northern Province, Mazabuka in the Southern Province, and Mumba in the Central Province.
