Abstract
As one of the important new agricultural operators in China, farmers’ professional cooperatives (hereinafter referred to as cooperatives) is an important carrier to increase the income of farmers and promote poverty alleviation. The effect of income increase of cooperatives directly affects the process of poverty alleviation in poor areas. Therefore, based on the survey data of 700 households in poverty-stricken county of Qinba mountain area of Sichuan province, this paper used the propensity score matching method (PSM) to analyze the income increasing effect of cooperatives in poverty-stricken areas and explore the influence of cooperatives on household agricultural net income. It is found that cooperatives in Qinba mountainous area of Sichuan province have a significant role in promoting the increase of farmers’ agricultural net income, and there are differences in the effect of income increase among different income groups. Whether the local farmers have received technical training, education, health status, and distance to the county are all factors that affect the local farmers to join the cooperatives.
