Mobility and Inequality in Indian Agriculture

P N Junankar This paper attempts to study changes in income and wealth distribution in Indian agriculture, using Farm Manage- ment Studies data for the Ferozepur district of Punjab. The proposed method of analysis allows the author to test whether inequality is increasing or decreasing on average or whether it is changing due to mobility in the sample. Also tested are the commonly made assumption of 'time homogeneity,' i e transition probabilities remain constant over time, and whether an individual farm that does well in one period does even better in the next period.
