Description: Analyzes the regional impacts of research benefits in the United States due to the introduction of structural particleboard. The distribution of consumer benefits, producer benefits, direct employment impacts, and changes in wood requirements are analyzed for the four census regions. The distribution of benefits is found to differ widely between regions, indicating the need to evaluate the distributional impacts of new technologies.
Keywords: structural particleboard, technical change, distributional impacts
