Analyzing farm structural change using the Norwegian Direct Payment Register: Data overview and preliminary analyses
MetadataShow full item record
The Norwegian Direct Payment Register (PTR) is a database covering all units that claim direct payments on the basis of eligible animals and acreage. As almost all farms apply for payments and as almost all animal and crop production activities are eligible for various kinds of direct payments, the database represents an unique tool to analyse farm structural change. This paper contains a detailed description of the database and presents some possible venues to conduct such research.
