Abstract

The paper presents how factors of the socio economic structure of mountain farms influence the timing of succession. The methodology is described in detail, especially the limited dependent variable models (tobit models) by which influences were assessed. The results were linked with findings of other researchers and show that the timing of succession increases with an increase in the number of children - especially male children - in a householder's family, and with an increase in the householder's age, as well as with an increase in the size and economic power of a farm, which is contrary to our expectations.
