Georgia State University Spending Patterns and the Atlanta Economy, 1978. Institutional Research Report No. 79-8.
Salley, Charles D.
The level of economic stimulus provided to the Atlanta area by Georgia State University was examined and found to be 5,432 full-time jobs and $140.2 million in income. It is shown that the figures are conservative since spending by part-time employees and most part-time students was omitted. A calculated multiplier of 1.48 was used, and the study avoided both the oversimplification of aggregate location quotient models and the massive data requirements of input-output models. Previous impact studies are reviewed and a bibliography is included. (Author/LBH)
