Cotton Research

This page is a repository for my research on cotton, particularly on the Better Cotton Initiative.

The following elements constitute the work completed to date:

  • “Is it really Better Cotton?” – This short (1500-word) post provides the high-level view of the research and its conclusions.
  • Technical Report (with Charmaine Guillory): This document lays out the goals of the research, provides detailed explanations of the data, and describes the findings.
  • Technical Appendix (with Charmaine Guillory): This compendium of firm-level information is the foundation for the other research items.

Please contact me if you would like the full research database, or if you have questions about this research. (jskov [at]
