    Abstract

    This paper examines whether purchase of development right (PDR) programs slow the rate of farmland conversion or shift land and amenity losses to adjacent areas. We use county-level data from several Northeastern states with existing PDR programs to estimate the probability that farmland is converted to urban use from 1982 to 1997. We then use the fitted model to test for the significance of the PDR programs in reducing the rate of urban development.
