    Description

    This paper examines five "timber-dependent" counties in the Pacific Northwest to document: (1) net migration rates of older (and presumably retired) people into these counties, and (2) changes in the economic base of each county during the 1970's. We identify a "retirement" sector and argue that it has become a major economic sector in three of our study counties. This development has at least two implications for natural resource management in such counties. First, economic diversification may lessen the effects of projected declines in timber harvests. Second, local concern for the management of amenity-related resources may grow.
