Abstract
  • Data on motor carrier commodity weights collected in 1976 at Oregon weigh stations by the Public Utilities Commission and the Department of Transportation are not in a form that readily allows for commodity flow analysis. A methodology is presented that reduces existing forest product commodity data into a graphically displayed form showing size and direction of commodity flows within the state. Existing information on the forest products industry is used to determine whether the adjusted flows are representative of what took place within the industry during that year. The timber commodity flows examined in this study correlate well with existing data on this portion of the industry. A less significant relationship, however, exists for the lumber and plywood commodity flows also examined.
