Abstract

Traditional rural ways of life are, as a result of modernization processes in many European countries, in transition. This article, based on data of the European Social Survey (ESS), deals with the question of whether social context conditions are reflected in orientations and values of farmers, and how these differ from other occupational groups. Empirical results show that farmers significantly differ from other occupational groups in the assessment of their material resources as well as in their attitudes and values, and that the manifestations of these perceptions are only slightly influenced by macro variables (welfare-type). Keywords: Agriculture, Europe, social position, values, welfare states, multilevel analysis
