Economic Effects of NRCS Conservation Spending in Utah

Economic Effects of NRCS Conservation Spending in Utah

Economic multipliers are numbers indicating the approximate total amount of economic activity generated within a specific geographic area by NRCS conservation activities. Multipliers are shown for both NRCS cost-share spending and spending on jobs (labor demand). The document “How to Interpret Economic Multipliers” gives a basic overview of multiplier analysis. It tells what the numbers mean and also provides definitions of the terms used in the multiplier tables for each NRCS field office.
