JPD 1993 Vol. XX No. 2-e: Agricultural Growth and Rural Performance: A Philippine Perspective

Usual indicators of intertemporal rural performance are technically flawed mainly because of the “shifting” of the physical area of the rural sector as population grows and/or economic activity expands. This problem is illustrated here using Philippine recovery data. Also shown is the fact that Green Revolution has not substantially alleviated rural poverty in the Philippines.
