Abstract

Resource economists involved in regional analysis of supply and demand relationships are concerned with the cost, reliability, and relevance of alternative levels of data detail. In this case study, a linear programming model designed to analyse an area's agricultural production potential is constructed and run at three different levels of soils detail. It is concluded that the proper level of detail ultimately depends upon the shape of the users'demand function for information.
