Abstract or Summary
  • Historically the national market for forest products has greatly influenced the economies of Oregon and its regions because of the high dependence of these economies on the forest products industry. With the possibility of decreased timber production in the area and the high probability of increasing demand for forest products the economies of Oregon and its regions may in the future be limited by timber harvest rather than the national market. In this case a change in the amount of timber harvested in a region is the direct cause of a change in forest products industry production and employment, resulting in a corresponding change to the entire regional economy, This study identifies the importance of the forest products industry to the regional economies of Oregon in recent years. Relationships between regional timber harvest and forest products industry employment are identified, which are of some use in predicting employment changes due to changes in timber harvest, when harvest rather than the market is limiting industry production. Finally, employment impact multipliers are derived which can be used to obtain rough estimates of changes in total regional employment in response to changes in basic forest products industry employment.
