Abstract

The purpose of this study is to adapt and develop a methodology of practical statewide macroeconomic analysis that is an alternative to the construction of a statewide input-output econometric model. The three objectives of this study are: 1. To present an annual stochastic econometric model of the South Dakota economy which is an adaptation of Daniel B. Suits’ 1962 annual stochastic econometric model of the United States economy; 2. To demonstrate the model’s use as an effective instrument by which state economic performance can be forecast; 3. To begin exploration of the model’s implications for the economic impact which selected exogenous economic policies may have on the state economy.
