DETERMINANTS OF STATEWIDE LAND DEVELOPMENT IN THE UNITED STATES

A reduced-form model of developed land area was estimated with data from 49 states for 1982-1997. This area increases with a state's lagged population and its real economic growth rate. The area of developed land is also higher in states with larger areas of water and regions with higher educational performance. Developed areas are lower in states with higher real per capita agricultural production.
