The economic development in a six-county region in southwestern Wyoming is analyzed to project the long-term economic and demographic impacts. This study presents the findings for Sublette County, in particular, though the other five counties have separate volume results prepared. The Bureau of Economic and Business Research (BEBR) of the University of Utah presents this study for the Coalition of Local Governments to describe and define the historical economic and population trends in the six counties affected: Fremont, Carbon, Lincoln, Sublette, Sweetwater, and Uinta.
The REMI PI+ model analyzes the long-term trends, including future conditions in each county and the economic connections between all six modeled counties and their relation to the outside world. The model explores the impacts of additional employment in a variety of industries over the next twenty-five years.
