Model-based analysis of regional value creation effects in rural development programmes

The growth and employment effects of five different types of measures in the framework of rural development programmes are determined for six federal states. The particular challenge is to create regional input-output tables for the six federal states via hypotheses and empirical material from the client on the distance dependency of intermediate inputs. Based on these regional IOTs, the indirect effects of the measures are then determined and fed into the LÄNDER module to simulate the multiplier effects.

The results are published together with the mid-term evaluation of the rural development programmes (EAFRD) for the federal states/groups (e.g. Lower Saxony/Bremen in the annex).
