Abstract

This paper addresses the supply-side explanations of a logger shortage by estimating an occupational choice model that considers the role of earnings, non-pecuniary determinants and intergenerational factors. Our results showed that: (1) relative earnings have no statistically significant effect on career choice; (2) improvement in the public image of loggers substantially increases entry into logging; and (3) a strong intergenerational supply linkage exists but is currently being eroded.
