DescriptionAn econometric model of the domestic insulation board industry was developed to identify and quantify the major factors affecting quantity consumed and price. The factors identified were housing starts, residential improvement activity, disposable personal income, productivity, pulpwood and residue prices, and power costs. Disposable personal income was the most important of these factors, affecting both quantity and price. Annual projections of quantity and price show quantity increasing by 30 percent and price by 106 percent by the year 1990.
