Abstract

In 1973 Charnes, Haynes, Hazleton and Ryan (19T5) presented a comprehensive decision framework for evaluating competing alternative environmental and economic policies in the Texas Coastal Zone. Such a framework had imbedded within it a series of interactive submodels. Some of these have been presented elsewhere (Haynes et al., 1974; Haynes and Kleeman, 1975; Kleeman, Haynes and Freeland, 1975; Phillips, White and Haynes, 1976; Charnes, Haynes and Phillips, 1976). But a unique “rows only” **impact evaluation procedure may be of particular interest since we have now demonstrated its useful application not only in environmental policy evaluation but in related evaluations of the local economic impact of alternative energy source utilizations.
