Chi G. and Marcouiller D. W. Isolating the effect of natural amenities on population change at the local level, Regional Studies. As latent production inputs, natural amenities are thought to serve as the basis for a variety of regional effects. In this study, natural amenity and socio-economic conditions were analysed with respect to population growth empirically estimated at the municipal level in an amenity-rich lakes region of the North Central United States from 1970 to 2000 with a specific focus on spatial relationships. The limited results suggest mixed effects that confirm an increased amenity influence as one of many factors that drive localized population change. [image omitted] Chi G. et Marcouiller D. W. Isoler l'effet des amenites naturelles sur la variation demographique au niveau local, Regional Studies. On pense que les amenites naturelles, en tant que facteurs de production latents, sont a l'origine d'effets regionaux multiples. Dans cette etude sur une region de lacs riche en amenites du Centre Nord des Etats-Unis, les caracteristiques socioeconomiques et d'amenites naturelles ont ete analysees par rapport a l'evolution demographique estimee au niveau communal sur la periode 1970-2000, avec un ciblage specifique des relations spatiales. Les resultats limites suggerent des impacts mitiges qui confirment un effet amenite accru mais parmi d'autres facteurs qui influencent la variation de population localisee.

Isolation der Auswirkung naturlicher Attraktionen auf demografische Veranderungen auf lokaler Ebene, Regional Studies. Naturliche Attraktionen gelten als latente Produktions-Inputs und als Grundlage fur die verschiedensten regionalen Auswirkungen. In dieser Studie analysieren wir die naturlichen Attraktionen und soziookonomischen Bedingungen hinsichtlich des auf Gemeindeebene empirisch geschatzten Bevolkerungswachstums in einer attraktionsreichen Seenregion im mittleren Norden der USA im Zeitraum von 1970 bis 2000 unter besonderer Beachtung der raumlichen Verhaltnisse. Die begrenzten Ergebnisse lassen auf gemischte Auswirkungen schliessen, die einen gestiegenen Einfluss der Attraktionen als einen von zahlreichen Faktoren bestatigen, die zu lokalisierten demografischen Veranderungen fuhren.

Aislamiento del efecto de comodidades naturales en el cambio de poblacion a nivel local, Regional Studies. Se considera que como aportaciones de produccion latente, los comodidades naturales sirven de base para una serie de efectos regionales. En este estudio, se analizaron los servicios naturales y las condiciones socioeconomicas con respecto al crecimiento de la poblacion calculado empiricamente a nivel municipal en una region de lagos rica en comodidades en la zona central norte de los Estados Unidos de 1970 a 2000 con un enfoque especifico en las relaciones espaciales. Los resultados limitados indican efectos mixtos que confirman un aumento en la influencia de las comodidades como uno de los muchos factores que impulsan el cambio localizado de la poblacion.
