PJD 2002 Vol. XXIX No. 2-c: Impact of Agrarian Reform on Poverty

Using panel data from about 1,500 farm households and estimating from a logit model, the study shows that agrarian reform has had a positive impact on farmer beneficiaries. It has led to higher real per capita incomes and reduced poverty incidence between 1990 and 2000. Compared to nonagrarian reform beneficiaries, agrarian reform beneficiaries tend to have higher incomes and lower poverty incidence. Moreover, complementary inputs such as irrigation, credit and government services tend to increase the chances of farmer beneficiaries to be nonpoor.
