This document is a report on the economic impact of Johnson County Community College (JCCC) (Kansas) on Johnson County and the surrounding community. The information from the economic impact study are used to support the community college's effectiveness, assessment, and accreditation efforts. Results indicate that: (1) the Community College impacts the County economically through institutional, student, and employee expenditures--these 3 components supply the County with over $104 million of revenue through the purchase of goods and services; (2) JCCC helps increase the local business volume, which nearly doubles the direct economic impact of the initial expenditures; (3) the college employs 785 individuals full time, and more than 7,300 additional full-time jobs can be attributed to the institution; and (4) taxpayers invested over $53 million in the 1999-2000 fiscal year--due to the economic impact of the Community College, taxpayers enjoyed a $3.95 return on every dollar spent in support of JCCC. Appendices include a methodology, economic impact model, and economic impact calculation form. (Contains 10 references.) (MKF)
