Access as used in Magdanz Paper "The Persistence of Subsistence: Wild Food Harvests in Rural Alaska, 1983-2013"

This data was made as part of the Alaska Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Northern Test Case. This data was collected to examine how human population size, percent indigenous, economy, urban/rural, and access influence subsistence harvests over time. For 354 survey projects in 179 small- and medium-sized communities for which the Division of Subsistence has comparable survey data from 1983 to 2013, we find that mean harvests per person are not associated with time alone. Mean harvests are associated with time for communities in the remote rural parts of the state, and they are slowly declining. In the rest of the sample of communities, harvests are not associated with time (i.e. there is no significant change over time).
