SOCIOECONOMIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT
Taught by Dr. Larry Leistritz
Six week course starting February 12. Register by February 2.
Designed for economic and community development specialists,
extension educators, and consultants. Students do not need to have
degrees in economics.
· Ever had a major development project stall because the
public didn't realize the magnitude of the multiplier effects?
· Ever had consultants estimate the multiplier effects of a
controversial project without providing any details on how they got
their results? · Wish you could develop better requests for proposals
for doing socioeconomic impact studies or better evaluate studies that
have been done already? A "YES" to any of these questions means you
need to sign up for this course.
In this course you will learn how to interpret the results of
socioeconomic impact assessments for your community. Those
completing this course will be able to evaluate studies and
determine if the results are realistic for their problem and their
community or their region. Want to learn more? For a detailed outline
of the six-unit course, go to
Your instructor for this course will be Dr. Larry Leistritz, a
Distinguished Professor at North Dakota State University. You will be
learning from an internationally renowned expert in this field and the
co-author with Steve Murdock of the classic in the field,
"Socioeconomic Impacts of Resource Development: Methods of
Assessment". Read more about Dr. Larry Leistritz at
REGISTER ONLINE: The fee for this six-week course is only $260, only
1/3 to 1/2 what it would cost to take Dr. Leistritz's course in a
