Example text

The two surveys largely used the same questionnaires. The first survey was based on 2700 interviews, and the second on 1800. Both surveys were conducted in the same geographical area, but the specific respondents differed because not all individual participants in the first sample could be located, and because the numbers of farm units changed through ongoing reorganization. The two samples overlap, but are not identical. The monograph starts with a summary chapter that presents the main conclusions of the study.

Livestock products are produced in roughly equal proportions by enterprises and households, with very little production by private farmers. 3). Most of the agricultural producer enterprises in 1994 were shareholding farms of the closed or limited liability variety or collective and state farms that decided to retain their former status. The land and assets of these enterprises are now in most cases owned by the enterprises, and the enterprises in turn are owned by shareholders, who are employees or former employees (pensioners) entitled to participate in the distribution of land and asset shares by the former entity.

The study does not offer explicit policy recommendations, but instead indicates areas of high priority for additional analytical work. One conclusion of the study is that the process of structural change in Russian agriculture is far from complete. The legal environment should therefore protect mechanisms for continued restructuring, and not lock in place a structure created at the earliest stage of reform. Analysts should continue to clarify the factors affecting performance of the sector, and shaping its structural evolution.
