A Trade Area Analysis of Wisconsin Counties: Updated for 2010 AgEcon
Deller, Steven C..
For updated Trade Area Analysis (TAA) of Wisconsin counties we use the sales tax data as reported by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue for 2010. Only those counties that have elected to collect the optional county sales tax are included in the analysis. Because sales tax data are used one must keep in mind that the analysis focuses only on taxable sales and may not reflect the total level of activity in the county. Using Pull Factors and measures of Surplus and Leakage the relative strengths, and weaknesses, of local retail and service markets are identified. Changes in Pull Factors from 2005 to 2010 are provided to gain insights into growing and declining sectors. Finally, an update of simple Wisconsin retail market thresholds estimates (i.e., number of...

Agriculture and Rural Economic Growth AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Gould, Brian W.; Jones, Bruce L..
The role of farm dependence and size on rural economic growth is examined with data from 2,240 nonmetropolitan U.S. counties for the period 1990-1995. A simple neoclassical model of regional economic growth is set forth with a central question relating to the role of agriculture on rural economic convergence. Traditional neoclassical theory predicts that poor rural areas should grow proportionally faster than rich areas. As interpreted in the academic literature and popular press, a preponderance of small family farms should enhance growth. Results suggest that a higher level of local dependence on production agriculture could lower growth rates.

Amenities and Rural Appalachia Economic Growth AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Lledo, Victor.
Patterns of economic growth in rural Appalachia are examined with a focus on natural and built amenities. While the literature is clear that rural areas endowed with scenic beauty, lakes, forests, and wildlife, among other natural amenities, and coupled with built amenities such as golf courses, are experiencing robust economic growth. It is not clear if these patterns extend to rural Appalachia. In this applied research study we use data for rural U.S. counties. We estimate an augmented Carlino-Mills growth model with specific attention to growth patterns of Appalachia. We also build on the empirical modeling by adopting a Bayesian Modeling Average (BMA) approach to address the problem of model specification. We find that while there are some...

An Analysis of Retail and Service Sector Count Data: Identification of Market Potential for Wisconsin Counties AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Kures, Matt; Ryan, William.
The objective of this applied research project is to use Wisconsin county sales tax data to identify the strengths and weaknesses of selected retail and service sectors. Using “count” data on the number of businesses that report taxable sales we apply regression analysis to develop an estimate of the expected number of firms in the county. By comparing the observed and expected number of firms we can identify strengths and weaknesses. Through the regression analysis we can also identify which socioeconomic characteristics are associated with which types of retail and service firms. The method that we offer we refer to as Firm Count Analysis (FCA) and can be viewed as a complement to Trade Area Analysis (TAA) and the analysis of sales data.

Changes in Public Sector Employment with a Focus on Wisconsin 1993 to 2004 AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Maher, Craig.
This study examines patterns of total employment growth and growth in the public sector. We use data from the 50 states with a focus on the 1993 to 2004 time period. We define the public sector with respect to state government as well as local government with the latter including counties, municipalities, K-12 public schools and special districts. We maintain that given the labor intensive nature of the public sector we can assess the size of the government by monitoring public sector employment. The results clearly suggest that Wisconsin's public sector, as measured by employment, is not "out of control" and growth in the public sector is a natural by-product of growth in the overall economy.

COMPARING THE IMPACTS OF RETIREE VERSUS WORKING-AGE FAMILIES ON A SMALL RURAL REGION: AN APPLICATION OF THE WISCONSIN ECONOMIC IMPACT MODELING SYSTEM AgEcon
Shields, Martin; Deller, Steven C.; Stallmann, Judith I..
The Wisconsin Economic Impact Modeling System, a conjoined input-output/econometric model of Wisconsin counties, is used to simulate the economic and fiscal impact of two alternative residential development patterns. Under the first scenario, the impact of migrating retirees on a small tri-county region in northern Wisconsin is examined. Under the second scenario, the impact of the migration of younger families with children is examined. A comparison-contrast between the two scenarios demonstrates that the characteristics of the migrating household can have a significant impact on the nature of the impacts.

Convergence in Local Government Spending: Evidence from Wisconsin AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Skidmore, Mark.
A substantial body of theoretical and empirical evidence demonstrates that interregional competition for factors of production leads to convergence of per capita output. Is there an analogous process that leads to convergence of public sector activity? Skidmore, et al (2004) develop a model that is consistent with the macroeconomic growth literature, which predicts convergence in government spending. Based on this framework, we test for convergence in government spending using detailed data from Wisconsin for a variety of municipal government expenditure categories over the 1989/90-1999/2000 period. Our empirical investigation provides compelling evidence of convergence in capita government spending for all the expenditure categories we study. This work...

CRIME AND THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN WISCONSIN COUNTIES AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Ottem, Thomas D..
The impact of crime on the local quality of life of a region is examined. Using the methods suggested by Roback (1982) hedonic pricing analysis is used to examine the effects of eight categories of crime on property values and wages. The hedonic results are then used to calculate the implicit prices of the various types of crime. Prices are computed for both urban and rural areas reflecting differences in lifestyle and the corresponding impact of crime. As expected, crime has a measurable negative cost and lowers overall quality of life in a region and the level of impact varies significantly by type of crime.

Economic Impact of Foreign Exports on the Wisconsin Economy AgEcon
Deller, Steven C..
Increasingly discussions of what can be done to improve Wisconsin’s economy look to international markets as a potential source of growth for Wisconsin goods and services. For the most recent available data Wisconsin’s exports amount to almost $22 billion annually, with the majority of that originating in manufacturing, especially from the production of industrial machinery. This level of foreign exports generates about 115,000 jobs and about $10.5 billion of total income for Wisconsin, with those figures capturing only the “direct” effects of exports and not the potential multiplier effects once the products are sold. In ten years’ time from 1996-97 to 2007-08 foreign exports from Wisconsin nearly doubled.

ECONOMIC IMPACT OF YOUTH HOCKEY TORUNAMENTS: A CASE STUDY OF THE LA CROSSE AND ONALASKA ICE RINKS AgEcon
Schultz, Marc; Deller, Steven C..
Youth hockey is a major recreational and family event in Wisconsin and throughout the upper Midwest. Formal programs exist for youth simply interested in learning skating skills and the fundamentals of hockey to those interesting in competing in national and international tournaments. Demand for "ice-time" at the available indoor ice rinks have youth hockey players skating in the early hours of the morning before school and into the evening. In response to the growing popularity of youth hockey, a number of formal associations, such as the Onalaska/Holmen Tornado Youth Hockey Association and the River City Youth Hockey Association, have been formed to coordinate a range of learning opportunities and formal team tournaments.

Employment Trends in the Public Sector AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Maher, Craig.
A detailed assessment of employment trends in the public sector from 1979 to 2001 is provided. Particular attention is paid to the relative level of public sector employment is Wisconsin . The analysis also examines the relationship between the size of state and local government and overall employment growth from 1979-2001. Results suggest that growth in total employment and employment in the public sector are highly correlated; higher shares of total employment in the public sector in the beginning of the period are not correlated with subsequent growth rates; but a state that sees the public sector grow faster then overall employment growth tends to be associated with slower overall growth. In addition, when measuring the size of the public sector in...

Government, Effectiveness, Performance and Local Property Values AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Maher, Craig.
We offer a practical test of local government effectiveness in the provision of public services. Building on the work of Brueckner (1979, 1982, 1983) and Henderson (1990, 1995) we offer a property value maximization model where levels of local public services are capitalized into property values. Using data for Wisconsin municipalities we demonstrate that service expenditure levels, and corresponding taxation levels, should be increased. In other words, the property value maximization test suggests that local public services in Wisconsin are consistently under-provided. By monitoring local property values officials can objectively determine if public services are being provided in an optimal manner.

GROWTH AND FISCAL HEALTH IN WISCONSIN CITIES AgEcon
McCullough, Stacey W.; Deller, Steven C..
The intent of the applied research reported in this paper is to examine the relationship between growth and the fiscal health of a subset of local governments (incorporated cities) over the last decade. While any number of researchers has raised this question, the literature has tended to focus on larger urban areas during economic downturns. Ladd's (1994) most recent research looking at the fiscal effects of growth has become perhaps the most influential in this line of work. Ladd's research, however, is limited in that she focused on per capita spending, a variable of interest in itself and because it can be conceptually linked to service quality and tax burden. While the data used in her analysis do not reflect a period of economic downturn, the data...

How Stressed are Wisconsin Cities and Villages? AgEcon
Maher, Craig; Deller, Steven C.; Kovari, John.
For the fourth time since 1997, a web-based survey of fiscal health was administered to administrative officials of Wisconsin cities and villages during the summer of 2010. A total of 195 municipalities responded to the survey. Of those administrative officials responding, 53 percent reported that their current revenue base was inadequate and more than 62 percent responded that their fiscal condition in five years will be inadequate. Some of the strategies most actively pursued in response to fiscal stress include the adoption or increase in user fees and charges, improved productivity through better management and pursuit of grants from federal/state governments. Strategies least likely to be pursued include laying off workers, increasing short-term debt...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT TAXING, SPENDING AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: NEW EVIDENCE FOR WISCONSIN AgEcon
Deller, Steven C.; Lledo, Victor.
Wisconsin is generally viewed as a high tax state. Depending on how one measures tax burdens, Wisconsin's rankings range from either the top five, or right in the middle of the national average. While these rankings have always been a source of discussion in Wisconsin, the state's current budget deficit, and the proposed solutions, has renewed the public debate about Wisconsin's fiscal policies with a vengeance. Accusations of duplication of services, higher costs inherent to the small scale of operation and a general tendency to be "big spenders" have created a firestorm of controversy. Further, a range of business support organizations has renewed yet again the call for tax reductions in the name of economic growth. In this applied research study we...
