Regional Economic Impacts of Timber-Based Activities: A User's Guide
Foresters are being asked to provide estimates of the regional economic impact of forest-related activities. Impact can be measured in several ways; both direct and indirect impacts should be considered. This paper outlines the regional timber-based system, defines measures of direct impact, and reviews models for estimating regional multipliers and their data requirements. A field study conducted in New York shows an example of a small area impact study. North J. Appl. For. 2:71-75, Sept. 1985.
