  17. Improved Forecasting of Water Demands for South Florida Based on Household and Business Sector Micro-Data, Richard Weisskoff, University of Miami, Dept of International Studies (economics). This paper estimates new water demand coefficients for 20 industrial sectors and for household use based on residential characteristics in South Florida. We begin with a monthly micro-file of all water users in Miami-Dade County for three consecutive years. We add house and building characteristics to the residential file, and employment and business sector codes to the industrial-and-commercial file. We then estimate demand functions for the industrial sectors and for different residential types. The result is a set of Florida-specific coefficients of water use which we then apply to our regional economic forecasting model. These estimates are superior to the IWR-MAIN and in-house models which have been shown to seriously understate long-term water use. (See Weisskoff, Economics of Everglades Restoration, Ch. 16). Our technique remedies the deficiencies of the off-the-shelf “standard” estimating models used in the past for South Florida.
