Heterogeneity of family and hired labor in agriculture: a test using farm-level data from India and Malaysia

, : Heterogeneity of family and hired labor in agriculture: a test using farm-level data from India and Malaysia. Center Discussion Paper, Economic Growth Center, Yale University (444): 27

The paper tests the hypothesis that family and hired labour are perfect substitutes in agricultural production, and estimates the elasticity of substitution between the two kinds of labour, using household-level data from two different regions: India and Malaysia. The estimated production function allows a variable elasticity of substitution between hired and family labour.

Sediments that have been deposited along these coastlines, often in back-barrier locations, have bee...
