Zhang publishes in Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy

Associate Professor Wendong Zhang published an article in the latest issue of Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy with Qing Liu of Zhongnan University of Economics and Law and Beatrice Maule of Iowa State University.

Zhang, Liu, and Maule authored the article "Of women and land: How gender affects successions and transfers of Iowa farms." Their article uses responses to the 2019 Iowa Farm Transfer Survey to examine factors in farm successor choices among Iowa farmers with a focus on female successors and landowners and finds striking evidence of gender imbalance in farm succession, transfer, and inheritance decisions of US farms.
