CRP 6270

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

A central concern of practicing planners and economic development professionals is how different events affect the regional economy of concern.  Some events are the result of policy choices, such as the closing of a military base or an increase in the local sales tax.  Some are the result of exogenous economic forces such as out-migration of population, disasters, natural-floods and hurricanes.  This course defines the context, a regional economy, for such analysis, and then presents analytical tools for estimating economic impacts.  The major tool covered in depth is regional input-output.  Most of the course is devoted to understanding and applying IMPLAN, a software and data system for performing regional import-output analysis at the county level.
