US Newsprint Demand Forecasts to 2020

  title={US Newsprint Demand Forecasts to 2020},

The paper provides projections for US newsprint demand up to 2020. First, various specifications of the standard model used in forest product demand literature, which we call the classical model, were estimated using annual data from 1971–2000. The results indicated that structural change in the newsprint consumption pattern took place at the end of the 1980s. The classical model fails to explain and forecast the structural change. This finding motivated the formulation of alternative models… CONTINUE READING
