The Direct Economic Impact of New Jersey's Community Colleges.
Ryan, Gordon Jeremiah
The study described in this report examined the direct economic impact of Brookdale Community College (BCC) on Monmouth County and the economic impact of the state community college system on New Jersey. Chapter 1 reviews the background and significance of economic impact studies; discusses the issue from general, New Jersey, and BCC perspectives; highlights research questions; defines terms; and outlines the assumptions and limitations of the study. Chapter 2 presents a literature review, including case studies and an examination of the historical and theoretical bases of economic impact studies. Chapter 3 discusses study methodology, focusing on project management, development, and implementation; research issues and questions; and study chronology. Chapter 4 presents findings within six subcategories: development of the survey; determination of the multiplier for calculating the indirect impact of each dollar spent; research questions; utilization of results; production of an economic impact study handbook; and project evaluation. Chapter 5 provides an interpretation of results within each of the same subcategories, conclusions, and recommendations. The direct economic impact survey is appended. (HB)
