Abstract : Estimates are presented of employment on private, collective, and state farms (excluding the war years), in man-days and in annual averages or equivalents in the Soviet Union. Emphasis is on the private and collective sectors, for which Soviet sources do not provide complete or consistent data. Besides comparing the estimates with other published series, and showing what they imply with regard to over-all labor productivity in agriculture, the report comments on utilization of collective farm labor, and assembles data bearing on incentives to work on the private plot (incomes of collective farm households from their plots compared with earnings for collective work, trends in the terms of trade, direct taxes, and other elements of government policy affecting the plot).
