Poverty and public assistance among Alaska Natives : implications for 1991 by Matthew D Berman( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ancsa) distributed 44 million acres of land and nearly $1 billion to Alaska Natives. The land and equity is currently being held by 12 regional corporations and 150 village corporations formed by the act. Native shareholders, however, will be free to sell their stock in these corporations for the first time on Dec. 31, 1991. This report addresses the magnitude of the potential problem posed for Native Alaskans receiving public assistance, should they exercise this option, noting that as many as 40 percent of low-income Native stockholders will be inclined to sell their stock since owning stock in the corporations could make them ineligible for public assistance programs. Relying primarily on data from public service agencies, the report discusses state and federal assistance programs for low-income Alaskans and outlines eligibility criteria for each, paying attention to assets that might affect Native corporation stockholders. Data on recent enrollments and trends in public assistance among Native Alaskans are examined. It was found that poverty among Alaska Natives continues to be widespread, and that almost all rural Alaskans receiving public assistance in early 1986 were Natives. It is concluded that the sale of 40 percent of the stock would have the effect of dissipating the benefits for Native Alaskans of the ancsa, not only for those who sell, but possibly for all Natives. Eleven tables and a list of references are included. Two appendixes provide data on financial eligibility criteria for Alaska public assistance programs and on families below poverty level with and without public assistance income, native/non-native by census area, 1979.

Economic valuation of critical habitat closures by Matthew D Berman( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We developed methods to estimate the spatial variation in economic values of ocean fisheries, and applied the methods to estimate the cost of closing groundfish fisheries in Steller sea lion Critical Habitat in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. The research addressed two related goals: (1) explicitly linking spatial variability of fisheries biomass and profitability over time to environmental variables; and (2) developing estimates of opportunity costs of time and area closures to the fishing industry at scales relevant to management. The approach involved two stages of statistical analyses. First, environmental conditions measured at 3 km and 9 km spatial scales and two-week and one-month intervals were used to predict fish biomass and fisheries catch per unit of effort (CPUE). Environmental variables included bathymetry, remotely sensed physical and biological observations, and output from a physical oceanographic circulation model. Second, we used predicted CPUE and spatial regulatory and cost factors to explain the spatial distribution of fishing effort over time. Our results suggested that 2001 Critical Habitat closures cost the North Pacific groundfish trawl fisheries 5-40 percent of their total potential net earnings. The improved methods for estimating opportunity costs of fisheries closures we present have direct applications to evaluating boundary changes to marine protected areas and other spatial management decisions. Limitations include the extensive data requirements and the need to bootstrap confidence intervals. If further research demonstrates the robustness and stability of the estimated relationships over time, the methods could project spatial fishery effects of climate variability and change, leading to dynamic spatial models linking fisheries with ecosystems
