Abstract

The major purpose of this study is to determine the interdependence (as expressed through a particular quantitative technique) in employment of the sectors that produce, process, and service the outputs from and the inputs to farming. The total agribusiness sector, encompassing all processes between the manufacturing of farm inputs to the retailing of food and fiber products, thus is considered the source of labor demand. Methods are applied to measure how a change in final demands for one sector of this agribusiness complex alters employment or labor demand in other sectors of the complex. The study also projects, subject to limitations of the method, how employment or labor demand may be distributed among sectors of the agribusiness complex in 1980.
