The Impact of The University of Pittsburgh on the Local Economy.
Pittsburgh Univ., PA. University Urban Interface Program.
One of the projects selected for the University Urban Interface Program at the University of Pittsburgh was that of studying the impact of the university on the city of Pittsburgh. In pursuing this goal, studies were made of university-related local business volume; value of local business property committed to university-related business; credit expansion from university-related deposits; unrealized local business because of university activities; jobs attributable to the presence of the university; personal income from university-related business; goods and services procured with university-generated income; revenues received by local governments; public services required by university people; government properties allocatable to university-related services; real estate taxes foregone because of the tax exempt status of the university; the value of the municipal services provided by the university; and the ultimate socio-economic effect of the university on the city. The results of these studies are presented in this document. (HS)
