Abstract:

A view of forest-based economic activity is presented that highlights the interdependence among industries in separate producing regions. Interindustry transactions for the United States and four subregions (the Northeast, South, West, and Midwest states) were obtained from IMPLAN (IMpact analysis for PLANning), the USDA Forest Service's input-output modeling system. This information was combined with interregion product trade flow estimates obtained from a gravity model to yield an interregional input-output model of the United States emphasizing forest-based industries. The input-output model is used to determine the interregional output, employment, and income effects of final demand changes for products in particular regions. In general, the model reveals that forest-based industries are regionally interdependent, with the greatest spillover effects associated with forest-based industries in the Midwest and Northeast. For. Sci. 35(2):515-531.
