The Economic Impact of Ten Cultural Institutions on the Economy of the Salt Lake SMSA.
The impact of 10 cultural institutions on the Salt Lake City economy was determined by measuring their 1978 direct and indirect financial effects. The institutions are Ballet West, Pioneer Memorial Theatre, Repertory Dance Theatre, Salt Lake City Art Center, Theatre 138, Tiffany's Attic, Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Utah Symphony, Utah Opera Company, and the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company. Data gathered from the 10 institutions included operating and financial characteristics and total expenditures with local firms. Staff and audience surveys, tax rates and bases for all local jurisdications, local government expenditures, and the number of local housing units were also obtained. Direct local expenditures amounted to $6,080,500. Thirty percent of the total went toward local expenditures for goods and services, 51 percent for salaries and wages, 12 percent filtered into the community through local audience spending, 6 percent through non-local audience spending, and 1 percent through guest artist spending. Secondary business volume generated by institution-related effects totaled $9,978,282. Revenues to local government from the 10 institutions came to $405,680 while costs to local government amounted to $635,590. (KC)
