Agricultural Land Development in Lee County, Florida: Impacts of Economic and Natural Risk Factors in a Coastal Area


  • Li, Sheng
  • Nadolnyak, Denis A.


Farmland in Florida has undergone extensive conversion into residential and commercial uses. A censored survival model is applied to examine the timing of land use change using parcel-level data from Lee County, 1988-2008. Results suggest that flood and hurricane risks affect conversion timing while controlling for economic and demographic factors.
