Government payments have been a part of agriculture since 1933 and at no time has the government stated a policy objective of decreasing the agricultural labor force. The reality
of the matter may be considerably different. Using time series data and new econometric techniques, this study finds agricultural policy may have an unintended impact on labor migration. Specifically, we find that government payments increased labor migration from the farm. From 1939 to 2007, increased direct government payments resulted in greater migration of labor from agriculture. Government policy appears to have shown limited success at sustaining the agricultural labor force.
Forty-eight pairs of observers recorded fixations during three test sessions. In each session an adult subject executed a predetermined sequence of fixations for 15 20-s trials. Three factors were investigated: Viewing Condition (live vs. videotaped subject). Number of Stimulus Apertures (1, 2, 4) and Subject Eye Color (blue, brown). Results indicated that training procedures which focus on observer agreement generally lead Air Jordan 11 Retro Concords Vancouver
to acceptable levels of accuracy. However, certain procedural Air Jordan Women Shoes
variations affect observer accuracy and observer agreement in different ways. Likewise, certain experimental procedures are particularly demanding in terms of observer accuracy.
