Estimation of Income and Employment Multipliers for Marine-Related Activity in the Southern New England Marine Region

  • Thomas A. Grigalunas (a1) and Craig A. Ascari (a2)

Abstract

This paper summarizes some results of a Sea Grant-funded economic input-output study of marine-related activity in the Southern New England Marine Region. Data were obtained from 390 personal interviews; in addition, a wealth of secondary data was used. Type I and Type II income and employment multipliers were estimated for each of the nineteen marine-related industries included in the model. The results provide a basis to assist analysts concerned with assessing the impacts on regional income and employment of marine-related policies or developments proposed for the Region.
