Ohio Utica Shale

Site offers economic analysis in Marcellus shale

By Bob Downing Published: September 5, 2012

A new website is reducing confusion and bias among economic impact review analyses on natural gas drilling in the Marcellus shale region.

The site is www.EconomicImpactReview.com.

It will post and review economic impact studies and provide best prtactices for conducting such reviews.

While the initial emphasis is on Marcellus shale, the plan is to expand the reviews to other economic impact studies.

"A properly conducted economic anaylsis can be valuable," said Matthew Rousu, associate professor of economics at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pa, and creator of the website.

"But unlike academic studies, very few economic impact studies are reviewed by other experts in the field," he said.

You can also contact Rousu at 570-372-4186 or rousu@susqu.edu.
