Scope and Content
These computer output files are population projection models developed by the agency on behalf of counties and specific locales which are being considered as high level nuclear waste repositories or as prospective sites for tar sands and synfuels. This information is used to prepare reports for government planning and decision making at both the state and federal level. The demographic projections and spatial models cover the years between 1980 and 2010. They include impact studies offering baseline, low, high, and other scenarios for sites throughout Utah. The output created from 1981-1985 was generated by the UNIVAC computer at the University of Utah. Since 1985 these type of studies are conducted on the agency's local system database.
