Regional Econometric Assessment of Aggregate Water Consumption Trends
AbstractRegional water availability is becoming an issue in many parts of the world. To accurately gauge the severity of potential supply shortfalls requires quantitative assessment of agggregate consumption trends. Regional econometric modeling and foreccasting analysis offers one means by which this objective may be achieved. Results in the paper, obtained for El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, indicate that regional econometric models can be utilized to effectively analyze water consumption trends for metropolitan economies.
