The report defines Effective Population: "Effective population is defined as the population where people are found at a given point in time, as opposed to counting them only where they reside. Determining the effective population is essential for understanding the cumulative economic, social, and environmental impacts residents, workers, and visitors alike have on the community. Using the estimates from the effective population can help town and county staff, elected officials, and community organizations guide policies, revise land development regulations, and provide levels of service appropriate to the actual human population and ecosystem of Teton County."
