Biswa R. Das and Daniel V. Rainey

No 6799, 2008 Annual Meeting, February 2-6, 2008, Dallas, Texas from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: Statistically predicted future tourism demand is used to conduct an economic impact analysis in twelve tourism zones in the state of Arkansas. The analysis reveals spatial variability in employment, and output growth that will continue into the future. Tourism has the potential as an economic growth engine for the state, especially in economically disadvantaged regions with long-term benefits.
