Using a recent community-level data from Ethiopia, this study employed a Tobit model and investigates factors affecting participation rate in agricultural cooperatives. The average participation rate was calculated to be 50.3%, with a wide variation amongst communities. Our result confirms that access to paved road, average landholding of a household and information access have a significant effect on community-level participation rate in agricultural cooperatives. Based on the results of the study, policy implications are forwarded.
