Socioeconomic Effects of Large-Scale Resource Development Projects in Rural Areas: The Case of McLean County, North Dakota
AbstractThis study examines the socioeconomic effects of power plant construction and operation during the period 1975-1981 and also compares the actual changes in key economic and social indicators with those projected in impact studies conducted during the early stages of project development. The study thus serves as an analysis of the actual impacts of a major resource development project, as an evaluation of the reliability of anticipatory impact assessments, and as an initial evaluation of the need for and effectiveness of impact management measures.
