The Attitude-Behavior Gap in Farmers' Political Participation: An Economic Analysis

Guo Junping;Qu Song;Xia Ying;Wu Guobao;  
Using a sample of 1000 rural households from 10 counties in 5 provinces, this article analyzes the attitude-behavior gap in farmers' political participation from the perspective of economics. It finds that political participation attitudes of farmers and their subgroups are weakly related to their behaviors, all the correlation coefficients being less than 0.35; the proportion of farmers having the attitude-behavior gap in different groups lies between 11% and 59%, but mostly around 50%. The study indicates that there is a large attitude-behavior gap in general and in most subgroups, except in a very small number of farmers having higher social status and political identity or living in the eastern region. Moreover, the difference in attitude-behavior gap can be observed in variations of gender, ethnicity, marital status, political affiliation, social identity, employment location and region, but not that one is in poverty or not. Furthermore, the attitude-behavior gap differs by education level, consumption expenditure per capita, political affiliation, social identity, interpersonal satisfaction, employment location and political activity time. Among these, only education level is found to possibly widen the gap, while other factors have opposite impacts, with political activity time, social identity and employment location exerting the strongest influence.
