Land Documents, Tenure Security and Land Rental Market in China


  • Wang, Hui

We used household and farm-plot level data from a two period panel survey from 6 provinces in China to explore how tenure security, especially issuance of land documents, would affect people’s behavior in China’s rural land rental market. The econometric analysis shows that possession of documents and fewer major land reallocations would encourage households to engage in non-kin land renting, and the effect of land right documents is stronger in 2008 than in 2000.
