An analytical study of the changes in land tenure structure, equity and equality levels of distribution of the agricultural land holding in the Arab Republic of Egypt (A.R.E.)



An analytical study of the changes in land tenure structure, equity and equality levels of distribution of the agricultural land holding in the Arab Republic of Egypt (A.R.E.)



Bulletin of Faculty of Agriculture, Cairo University 52(4): 511-536



The mode and equity levels of agricultural landholding in 3 agricultural censuses (1961, 1981, 1989) in Egypt are analysed. The major finding is that agricultural landholding in Egypt is very small and scattered. The structure of agricultural landholding is dominated by the very small categories, i.e. 84 and 90% in 1961 and 1981 and 1989, respectively, of the total number of holders hold <5 feddans.
