Title: Fuelwood use in U.S. counties

Author: Skog, Kenneth E.; Manthy, Robert S.

Date: 1989

Source: Research report (Michigan State University. Agricultural Experiment Station) ; 486. East Lansing, MI : Michigan State University, Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989: 35 p.

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: This study explains and determines fuelwood consumption at the county level based on county economic and demographic conditions, and identifies U.S. counties where potential fuelwood use problems and benefits are greatest. The percentage of wood-burning households in a county is estimated and multiplied by estimated average wood consumed per wood-burning household in that county to produce an estimate of total county fuelwood use. Use estimates are then compared to forest inventory data to identify potential problem/benefit areas. Parameters in estimating equations are determined from fuelwood use data for individual households from a 1980-81 nationwide survey of 5,506 households. This report is divided into two parts: findings and methods. The findings section is a description of the study problem and results. The second part, methods, provides a detailed account of the methods used, caveats and recommendations for further research.

Keywords: Fuelwood, wood utilization, economics, demography
