Publications

The following selected publications are studies that illustrate the use of, or sometimes a discussion of, the JEDI models and their application to economic impact analysis. Inclusion in this list does not imply any type of endorsement of the results or comments offered in each study, because the accurate application of the model is in the hands of the analyst using the model.
