Estimating Local Economic Impacts in Land-Use Planning
Abstract:The U.S. Forest Service has traditionally been concerned with the effects of its management on local areas. An export base model has been developed for estimating some of these effects. A new computer program, BENEFIT, incorporating the essentials of the model, enables land-use planners to estimate some of the local economic impacts of alternative plans for the purpose of ranking those alternatives. The program also provides a brief economic profile of the multi-county local area.
