Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to determine the extent the relief status of the farm operator in South Dakota may be associated with various sizes of farms maintained. The author offers this particular study as one that has a decided bearing upon the relief situation in South Dakota 1934 to 1936 as that problem was decreased or augmented by the size of farm. The problem of relief, in the past discussed as poverty and pauperism, has been considered essentially a social problem. Poverty has been thought and written of as a pathological social condition, although few sociological students have considered the problem entirely apart from the economic field. Social and economic students of today are discussing the problem as a joint responsibility. This thesis shows the relationship of the sociological factor, poverty, as determined by the relief status of the South Dakota farmer, and the economic factor, size of farm operated.
