The objective of this study was to better understand the economic impacts of development on subsistence uses and activities. It describes costs that individuals and families incur to continue subsistence activities at desired levels in the Village of Nuiqsut. The project team proposed an economic model and developed an initial data gap analysis report to identify information needs. A questionnaire was developed based on the data gap analysis and administered in November 2017. An economic model of mixed subsistence-market economy was developed to produce a quantitative estimate of the impact on Nuiqsut households of potential changes in the availability of subsistence resources.
