Abstract:

Based on data from questionnaire surveys conducted in Tianjin,Guangdong and Chengdu,we explore farmer willingness to participate in rural housing land capitalization reform and influential factors in different capitalization models. The results show that factors including householder age,distance from the homestead to town and,per-capita housing involved in the rural residential land capitalization reform have a significant negative impact on farmer willingness to participate in rural housing land capitalization reform. At the same time,factors including householder educational level,family size to participate in social security,family main employment type,the off-farm income ratio of the family,number of homesteads owned by the family,economic development level,village characteristics,evaluation of government action,and expectations of capitalization reform have a significant positive impact on farmer willingness to participate in rural housing land capitalization reform. From differences between the three models,under the government-led model,farmer willingness is more affected by economic development level and evaluation of government actions;in the market-led model farmer willingness is more affected by family main employment type and number of homesteads owned by the family;and in the autonomous governance model farmer willingness is more affected by village characteristics and expectations of capitalization reform. According to regional resources and economic development levels,on the basis of respecting farmer willingness,government should select the appropriate rural housing land capitalization reform model,formulate reasonable income distribution rules and build farmer autonomous governance mechanisms. With these measures China can improve the performance of rural housing land capitalization reform and realize sustainable land-use.
