*1992 land use classification
forest- 40.9 ha.

Re: MARKOV CHAINS

Hey jeany lou.

There is not enough information to construct the chain. For this chain you need 16 probabilities and the only things you really know is the proportion of people that given a 1991 land use, either remained the same in 1992 or changed.

Without enough information, you can't construct a transition matrix.
