Changes in Land Distribution in an Agrarian Economy-Measurement of Household Mobility

Changes in Land Distribution in an Agrarian Economy Measurement of Household Mobility IN the research on patterns of transformation of agrarian society in developing countries, an important question relates to the nature of household economic mobility, in particular, the economic mobility of households in terms of the extent of ownership of land, and its implications for inequality in the distribution of land. Papers on this theme that are based on empirical evidence from south Asia include Attwood (1979), Cain (1981) and Hariss (1985) and, most recently, a paper by Sakti Padhi and K N Nair in this journal (EPW, March 20-27).
