The Impact of the Higher Education Capital Improvements Program on Ohio Communities.
Czamanski, Daniel Z.; And Others
The community impacts of the proposed higher education capital improvement appropriations for the State of Ohio for the period 1975-77 are identified. These impacts consist of increases in employment due to both direct and indirect effects, increases in Gross Regional Product (GRP) due to income effects, and increases in GRP due to inter-industry effects. The aggregate impact of the proposed $248.5 million capital improvements proposal for higher education on the state is conservatively estimated to be a maximum of $302.3 million increase in GRP due to inter-industry effects, and additional $365.7 million due to income-consumption effects, and 38,000 new jobs created. It was found that in each of the individual communities affected by the budget proposal, a positive impact on employment and income could be expected. The size of this impact is a function of, among other things, the number of dollars expended. The community impacts study is organized by county. Tables are included on employment effects, income multiplier effects, and inter-industry multiplier effects. (Author/LBH)
