    This guide identifies and describes sources of economic data useful to wildland managers and planners in the Western United States. The data are categorized by six types of management activities: outdoor recreation and wilderness; wildlife and fish; range; timber; land and water; and minerals and energy. For each type of activity, data sources are identified as to costs; outputs and their monetary values; nonmonetary data and impacts; information for supply and demand analysis; and secondary and indirect effects.
