Entropy Based Measurement Of Geographic Concentration In U.S. Hog Production
AbstractGeographic concentration in the U.S. hog industry from 1982 to 1995 is investigated using an entropy based measure. Results indicate that geographic concentration is occurring to the greatest degree in Kansas, Missouri, and North Carolina. Hog production is also increasing in North Carolina, indicating the potential for increased environmental problems. Keywords: hog industry
