A COMPUTABLE GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM APPROACH TO SURFACE WATER REALLOCATION POLICY IN RURAL NEVADA AgEcon
Seung, Chang K.; Harris, Thomas R.; Narayanan, Rangesan.
This study uses a computable general equilibrium model to examine the impacts of transferring water from agriculture to recreational use in rural Nevada. Model results show that different assumptions about input substitution in agricultural production produce qualitatively different policy impacts on agricultural sectors.

A DISAGGREGATED TIME-SERIES ANALYSIS OF EXPORT-BASE MODELS: A CASE STUDY ON ELKO COUNTY OF NEVADA AgEcon
Banerjee, Swagata (Ban); Harris, Thomas R..
An important issue of debate in economic base literature is whether the export-base theory applies best to the short run, the long run, or both. An attempt is being made here in answering this crucial question by applying a two-step test for cointegration on quarterly employment data, and in gaining insights as to whether or not any unequivocal judgment can be made regarding the validity of the economic base hypothesis.

An Efficiency Analysis of Nevada and Utah Counties: Region Size Leads Regional Efficiency AgEcon
Kim, Man-Keun; Harris, Thomas R..
The hypothesis that regional size increases regional efficiency is tested in this study. Data Envelopment Analysis and the Directed Acyclic Graph were used to reveal the causal relationship between regional efficiency and region size in terms of population density. Region size and the infrastructure directly cause regional efficiency, and regional efficiency affects regional income indirectly via formulation of Metropolitan area

Development and Initial Application of an Integrated Linear Programming/Social Accounting Model: Rangeland Livestock Application AgEcon
Harris, Thomas R.; Alevy, Jonathan E.; Kim, Man-Keun; Fadali, Betsy.
Changes in allocation of federal grazing permits to ranchers can impact not only local ranchers but the entire county economy itself. Regional impacts of changing grazing rights and grazing fees are measured by linking cattle production through a linear programming framework with a county level social accounting matrix (SAM) model.

Economics of Alternative Crop Production in Arid Regions AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; Bishop, Carol; Harris, Thomas R..
As water resources in arid regions decline, agricultural producers are encouraged to adopt water conserving strategies. The implementation of alternative low-water use crops is one option, but is it economically feasible? Data on current and alternative crops for this study include enterprise budgets, producer interviews, and field trials in Northwestern Nevada, USA. We use WinEPIC, a Windows-based version of the EPIC model, which synthesizes both agronomics and economics, to model yields and returns of alternative crop production under differing irrigation levels. Risk analysis or the distribution of net returns to alternative crop production is also examined. This study determined that there are alternative crops that could be feasibly substituted for...

ESTIMATION OF MINIMUM DEMAND THRESHOLDS: AN APPLICATION OF COUNT DATA PROCEDURES WITH THE EXISTENCE OF EXCESS ZERO OBSERVATIONS AgEcon
Harris, Thomas R.; Yen, Steven T.; Deller, Steven C..
Count data models that incorporate the existence of excess zero observations were employed to estimate minimum demand thresholds for rural Wisconsin retail sectors. It was found that single- and double-hurdle models improved the estimation of rural retail minimum demand thresholds.

FACTORS INFLUENCING RATES OF ADOPTION OF TRICHOMONIASIS VACCINE BY NEVADA RANGE CATTLE PRODUCERS AgEcon
Bhattacharyya, Arunava; Harris, Thomas R.; Kvasnicka, William G.; Veserat, Gary M..
Tritrichimonas foetus vaccine has been marketed since 1989 to combat the trichomoniasis disease that causes reproductive failure and considerable economic loss to Nevada ranchers. An ex post technology adoption model is estimated to examine the possible adoption rate, to identify the factors that may influence the adoption behavior, and to test how the probability of adoption for five possible adopter groups would change due to changes in various ranch specific factors. Results indicate that use of computers, veterinary checkup of herd, and herd size influence the probability of adoption. Model results show that cooperative extension programs enhance the rate of adoption.

INITIAL APPLICATIONS OF FUZZY SET PROCEDURES FOR ESTIMATION OF EXPORT BASE EMPLOYMENT AgEcon
Harris, Thomas R.; Thomsen, Roy W.; van Kooten, G. Cornelis.
Current export base methods that calculate basic and non-basic employment are too restrictive because they fail to account for uncertainty involved in the process. This paper shows the assignment of industries as either basic or non-basic by the location quotient procedure does not consistently represent the data for Nevada counties. Using fuzzy set procedures and membership functions in conjunction with the location quotient allow more flexibility in terms of matching the data for each industry in the region of interest. Using fuzzy set procedures we determine the proportion of employment that is basic and non-basic in nine non-governmental industries.

Input-Output Analysis, Linear Programming and Modified Multipliers AgEcon
Zhu, Erqian Julia; Kim, Man-Keun; Harris, Thomas R..
The input-output (IO) analysis explores changes in final demand through the regional economy using multipliers. However, it isn’t flexible to investigate the regional impact from the capacity limitations which are directly imposed on production, not final demand. This is because the multipliers are changing with exogenous restrictions on production. Conventionally, the IO analysis is performed assuming exogenous production restrictions being the changes in final demands or assuming the sector being exogenous sector like the final demand. If researchers or policy makers are interested in only economic impacts from production restrictions, there is no need to look into the modified multipliers. The modified multipliers should be considered when researchers...

Invasive Weeds, Wildfire, and Rancher Decision Making in the Great Basin AgEcon
Kobayashi, Mimako; Harris, Thomas R.; Rollins, Kimberly S..
In this article, a numerical stochastic dynamic programming model (SDP) is developed to characterize the decision problem of a rancher operating on rangelands in northern Nevada that are affected by invasive annual grasses and wildfire. The model incorporates decisions about herd size management of a cow-calf operation and fuels treatment to reduce the size of rangeland wildfires. Currently, high transactions costs to obtain permits to implement land treatments on federally-owned rangelands appear to limit rancher involvement. The results of the model suggest that ranch income motives alone are likely insufficient for private ranchers to adopt preventative land treatments. The current treatment cost ($20 per acre at the minimum) appears to be...

REGIONAL-LEVEL ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF GRAZING POLICY CHANGES: A CASE STUDY FROM OWYHEE COUNTY, IDAHO AgEcon
Darden, Tim D.; Rimbey, Neil R.; Harp, Aaron J.; Harris, Thomas R..
Regional economic impact models are important tools used to analyze the impacts of policy changes to a regional, state, county, or local economies. The National Environmental Policy Act requires economic analysis in preparing environmental impact statements to show the effects of policy alternatives on local economies. An input-output model was constructed for Owyhee County, Idaho, using farm- and ranch-level economic information to modify and “localize” the county IMPLAN model. This paper shows why an “out-of-the-box” model might not always be the best way to accurately account for economic impacts of policy changes on communities dependent on ranching and federal grazing. Results show that disparities exist between the hybrid model built for Owyhee...

STOCHASTIC DYNAMIC OPTIMIZATION AND RANGELAND INVESTMENT DECISIONS AgEcon
Lambert, David K.; Harris, Thomas R..
One of the most uncertain resources for a western beef cattle ranch is the availability of reliable spring forage. The impact on ranch equity position and income variability of investments in crested wheatgrass seedings designed to stabilize spring forage supplies is examined. Expected ending net worth under stochastic forage production and cattle prices is maximized subject to secondary safety-first objectives. Seedings increase expected ending net worth and increase annual net ranch incomes after plant establishment.
