Quarterly 1986: Northeast Farmland Values
Tauer, Loren W.; Weersink, Alfons
The primary purpose of this project was to monitor farmland value changes during the year. Less emphasis was placed on the absolute accuracy of the values obtained. Thus, effort was exerted to construct a panel of individuals quite knowledgeable on current values who would be willing to reply each quarter. This was done using personal contacts and professional organization lists. Unfortunately, this procedure resulted in a relatively small panel size which cannot be considered a random sample. Thus the absolute land values obtained may be biased but represents information from a group of people actively associated with the land market.
