The need for more accurate economic sustainability indicators within sustainable forest management has been suggested by a number of authors.
The intent of this study was to isolate the most credible economic indicators and examine them in forest dependent communities.
Data were extracted and derived from the Canadian census at the census sub-division (CSD) level for the years of 1986, 1991, and 1996. Frequency and distribution graphs were used to provide some insight into the changes in indicators over time, and correlation analysis was employed to examine correlations between the indicators and forest dependence.
CSD forest dependence is negatively correlated with median household income, and positively correlated with incidence of low income for people living in private households, and the unemployment rate.
The Gini coefficient values, measures of income inequality, were not related to the degree of forest dependence.
Some expected results were that increased forest dependence was correlated with decreases in the CSDs’ diversity and increases in its trade exposure to the export market.
While indicator patterns and their correla...
