State-Level Analysis of National Beef Policy: The Use of State Econometric Models

  • Roland K. Roberts (a1) (a2) and William J. Martin (a3)


Interest has grown in analyzing the impact of national imports of foreign beef on state agricultural sectors. In this study, an interfaced Hawaiian-national model is simulated for a change in national beef imports. Hawaiian and national impacts demonstrate wide variation in both sign and magnitude. Usefulness of state models is emphasized for situations where state impacts of national policies are of interest.
