ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF AGRICULTURAL LAND CONVERSION IN THE SOUTHEAST

We estimate a system of equation model to understand the factors that influence the loss of agricultural land to non-agricultural uses in the Southeast United States. This is done by analyzing the complex relationship between population, employment, and agricultural land density for the 1990–-2000 period. From the results, it can be noted that growth in employment over time and the expansion of residential housing have to be compromised with the agricultural sector on the use and allocation of land.
