• Graduates of Alaska's Teacher Preparation Programs-Where Are They Now?

      Hill, Alexandra (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2007)
      This presentation includes a review of the sources of data, and presents preliminary findings on graduates of initial certification programs in Alaska. It's purpose was to collect feedback on what analyses to add, refine, and revise. Data is presented in a series of charts and graphs with interpretations. We matched teacher program graduation data with Department of Labor data on Permanent Fund Dividend applications – a proxy for Alaska residence. Most people are eligible for a PFD by the time they complete a teacher preparation program here, so we looked at graduates who completed their programs between 2001 and 2003, and PFD applications from 2003 to 2005. Only 10% did not apply for a PFD in 2003,. We expected that number to rise if teachers moved out of state. Teachers who leave Alaska schools but remain in Alaska continue to apply for the PFD; those who don’t apply have probably left the state. By 2005, 16% no longer applied for a PFD and were probably no longer in Alaska. Further information is available in a summary and full report with a similar title.

    • An Introduction to the Economy of Alaska

      Knapp, Gunnar (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2012)
      Alaska’s geography—its location, climate, topography, and resources—have driven Alaska’s economy in the past and define and constrain its opportunities for the future. Alaska has abundant natural resources—oil, minerals, forests, fish. In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Alaska’s strategic location has contributed to the role of the military and more recently the international air cargo industry. Another Alaska natural resource--its natural beauty—represents an increasingly important natural resource. But Alaska’s remoteness from major markets, cold climate, mountainous topography, and permafrost make Alaska a costly place to extract resources compared with other parts of the world.

    • Multiple Margins of Fishing Behavior: Implications for Predicting the Effects of a Policy Change

      Reimer, Matthew (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska, 2014)
      This presentation provides an extensive overview of the analysis and findings of studies of policy change in fishing management. It concludes that "Accurate assessment of the impacts of a policy requires a description of the production process that is sufficiently “deep” so as to be invariant to changes in management institutions".
