Predicting Financial Stress in Farm Businesses
AbstractThis study uses a multinomial logit (MNL) model to examine financial strategies which may influence the likelihood of a farm becoming financially stressed in the next year. The model is operationalised by categorizing farms into one of three financial stress categories and accompanied by a comprehensive range of specification tests. The MNL model highlights the importance of industry and farm-specific factors on the incidence of financial stress. The model confirms the importance of increasing returns to equity as a strategy for reducing the likelihood of being classified as financially stressed. Copyright 1998 by Oxford University Press.
