Authors: Turner, Steven C.
Kriesel, Warren
Keywords: Green industry
Input-output model
Greenhouse and nursery products
Issue Date: 1995
Abstract: This article describes the relative size of the green industry within the U.S. economy and how it is linked to supporting industries through the volume of transactions and economic impact multipliers. This analysis was based on IMPLAN, an input-output model developed by the U.S. Forest Service. In terms of 1990 employment, the green industry was the second leading employer in United States production agriculture. In terms of output, the greenhouse and products sector ranked sixth within production agriculture, behind cattle, other livestock, grains, other crops and oil bearing crops.
