Description

The research reported in this bulletin employs the shift-share method by examining the growth patterns (1981-1986) in the economic structure of Maine and New England. The first section briefly describes the shift-share method and its limitations. The second section describes data employed and is followed by an empirical comparison of Maine to other New England states. Next, a detailed analysis of Maine's sub-regions (i.e., counties) is presented, and the bulletin closes with a short summary of the results and policy implications.
