About this book

Currently, the research community lacks the capacity to provide the accurate, up-to-date information about conditions and trends in rural areas necessary for effective rural development policy. Bringing together some of the best known rural development researchers, this volume begins to build an information base that can serve as a foundation for rural development policy. It deals with the four "building blocks" of rural development--education, entrepreneurship, physical infrastructure, and social infrastructure. The opening chapters address two aspects of each component--the concept of using that component to achieve rural development and the concept of measuring its impact. The volume then examines analytic methods of measuring impact. Following an overview of analytic methods, chapters apply a different analytic technique to each of the components. The techniques considered include econometric models, computable general equilibrium models, input-output analysis, and the case-study method.
