Abstract (type = abstract)
This research examines the social and demographic factors that inform the perspectives of farmers in New Jersey on whether the United States should continue to pursue free trade agreements. New Jersey is one of twenty seven states that were surveyed in a nationwide study conducted by the National Food, Agricultural and Public Policy in December, 2005. The paper uses ordered logit models to determine producer preferences on free trade. Five demographic and social variables including age, education, share of income from farming, farm sales, and percent of farm land owned, or tenure are measured in this study. The study finds that support for free trade is positively correlated with level of education and with age. Older farmers, namely those age 55 and above, and farmers/ranch operators with higher levels of education, namely bachelors or masters degrees, support a free trade policy. No evidence regarding support for free trade in terms of level of income, farm sales, or land ownership is found.
