The economic and social well-being of people of an area is largely determined by the amount and nature of their available resources in relation to the population. Lack of Economic and Social well-being in an area is indicative of either an inadequate supply of natural resources or improper utilization of them.
In an agricultural area the economic and social well-being is reflected in a large measure in farm dwellings, in farm and home conveniences, in kinds and conditions of roads and land usage. It is often said that Negro farms have a limited amount of resources, make little money, and will remain in the low economic class.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the forces influencing and determining the Economic Status of Negro farms in Burleson County, Texas. The writer hopes to find out what types of farming are being carried on and what is produced on the farms. Also to estimate the extent of farming operations among Negroes in the communities studied.
