Assessing income disparities between agricultural and non - agricultural households
The main objective of this study is to identify the income trends and to investigate the income changes and disparities in the Greek economy. In particular, the relationship between agricultural and non-agricultural per capita income is examined and causes of certain patterns of relation are sought for through statistical techniques and by computing certain indices. Results reveal that through per capita income in Greece has been significantly increased for the reported period (1985-2002), agricultural per capita income failed to follow suit. The income disparity between agriculture and non-agriculture population exacerbates the long prevailing problems of the agricultural sector. Although a considerable decline of the agricultural population has recorded providing more resources to fewer farmers, agricultural income decline still insists.
