Economic Benefits of Multiple Use in FY 2021

A new report shows economic output on BLM lands in FY 2021.

It was announced in a blog post dated May 23.

Which states lead the way in each category?

  • Grazing – Idaho
  • Timber – Oregon/Washington
  • Recreation – Utah
  • Renewables – California
  • Coal – Wyoming
  • Nonenergy Minerals – Nevada
  • Oil and Gas – New Mexico

The least valuable use of public lands, in terms of economic output, is livestock grazing and the greatest is oil and gas production.  Click on image to open in new tab.

An interesting exercise would be to compute economic output per acre used and show the results in a bar graph.
