Abstract

This research estimates a hazard model of forest conversion in southern Mexico using geographical information systems, household survey data, and satellite imagery. A utility-maximizing model consistent with agricultural frontier conditions is developed. The econometric methodology incorporates temporal dynamics into the otherwise static range of analyses possible using categorical satellite data.
