DescriptionAn econometric model of U.S. hardboard consumption was developed to identify the major variables affecting hardboard consumption and price. The variables identified were housing starts, residential improvement activity, disposable personal income, hardwood plywood price, productivity, pulpwood and residue price, hardboard tariff, and power cost, Disposable personal income was the most important of these variables, affecting both consumption and price. Annual projections show consumption increasing by 60 percent and price by 133 percent (over 1977 levels) by the year 1990.
