The purpose of this thesis is to estimate an econometric model of Palm Beach County, Florida. An econometric model was chosen as the appropriate method for study as the said county is characteristic of a service based final demand economy. An underlying objective was to utilize data on income and employment variables available on a consistent bases from a Regional Economic Information System Data computer tape provided by the u.s. Department of Commerce 1983. These data distinguished among 11 industries and referred to the years 1967-1983. In conclusion the model shows that ordinary least squares estimation results were generally significant in the signas and goodness of fit. However evidence of positive serial correlation of the disturbances was detected and the results did not change substantially after applying the Cocran-Orcutt procedure.
