COMPOSITION OF AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS FACULTIES IN 1862 LAND GRANT INSTITUTIONS

Survey results of departments of agricultural economics at 1862 Land Grant institutions are reported, giving the numbers of economists working in the areas of agricultural, resource, and community economics. Factor analysis is used to reduce descriptive state-level data in order to explain departmental compositions through regression analysis. Department heads also responded with the area to which a new, free position would be allocated. These responses are compared with residuals from the statistical models to evaluate department head allocation strategies.
