Farm Prices, Energy Prices and Rural Income in the U.S
AbstractCentral place theory and economic base theory are used to specify a model that describes rural personal income in the U.S. OLS regressions using annual 1969-2005 data show that rural income is significantly determined by metropolitan personal income and farm prices, as well as energy prices. The parity index performs slightly better than farm prices in describing rural income.
