Abstract

This chapter examines possible employment and associated local labor market effects of geothermal development in Imperial County, California. We first discuss available historical evidence from similar past research and then examine studies relating to the prospect of geothermal development in Imperial County. Next, we examine U.S. Census statistics on the county by using statistical regression in order to understand its socioeconomic characteristics, and to project potential employment effects of geothermal development. Finally, we address the applicability and potential usefulness of regression results to prospective geothermal development.
