Tianhui Zhuang, Haixia Zhang, Guopei Zhang, Xiaoping Zheng


In this article, five villages in Sichuan earthquake-stricken area are selected for study as examples. By building Logistic of binary choice models to analyze the influencing factors of peasants’ autonomy to play in post-earthquake reconstructions, authors found there was a positive correlation between education, subjective cognition of reconstruction, willingness to participate, effectiveness of improving the living environment after reconstruction and the autonomy of peasants to participate in post-disaster reconstruction. There was a negative correlation between cognition about the source of reconstruction funds, decision-making subjects of reconstruction and the autonomy of peasants in post-disaster reconstruction. Whether or not to actively participate in post-disaster reconstruction had no significant correlation to gender, age, effectiveness of increase in redevelopment projects, effectiveness of science and technology extension in redevelopment projects, leading subjects of reconstructions, government’s respect for the wishes of peasants, or peasants’ satisfaction for the performances of government in reconstruction.
