Abstract:

On October 2, 1981, the President announced his decision to cancel the M-X Multiple Protective Shelter MPS basing system. The Air Force was, at the time, working to prepare a Final Environmental Impact Statement FEIS for the MPS site selection process. This preliminary FEIS captures the environmental data and analysis in the document that was nearing completion when the President decided to deploy the system in a different manner. The community population allocation model is designed to provide predictions or forecasts of how the population associated with the in-migrant or nonlocal work force generated by the M-X project will choose to distribute themselves among the communities within the affected counties and regions. In-migrant population is not likely to be uniformly spread among all the communities but would vary from place to place depending on the location of project employment sites relative to communities and the characteristics of individual communities. Some communities would have larger impacts because they are near an operating base or other location of project employment, while the attributes of other communities may attract larger shares of new population than might be expected based on their distance from project employment sites. The model constitutes a means of simulating the residential location decisions of in-migrant households. Additional keywords civilian population, Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, Utah.
