Land tenure relations, social relations and the analysis of spatial discontinuity
Area 6(2): 132-136
Land tenure is a major social issue in any society, and may often be complicated by fragmentation. In this analysis a Relative Index of Land Parcellization (RILP) is described as being a comprehensible statistical tool for certain generalizations. While this is not an all embracing measure, the index has some validity for certain types of agrarian societies.
