  26. Economic Impact Analysis

  27. What is Economic Impact Analysis II… • Is to measure changes in an economy due to a change in one industry • A change in one industry e.g. opening or closure can have an impact on jobs and income on other sectors of the economy • This impact can be measured using what is know as multipliers.

  28. What is Economic Impact Analysis I….. • Economic Impact Analysis • Is an evaluation model to determine if the tool is right for the target • Looking forward • Current snapshot • Tells Us Two things… • Economic impact of the existing health care sector • Economic impact of expanding or contracting the health sector • It Does Not tell Us: • Which tool to use?

  29. Economic Impact Analysis Multipliers • Industries are linked together by their purchases from each other • These linked purchases produce jobs and income to local residents and commuters in the local economy • For example, hospitals demand goods and services from suppliers, those suppliers in turn demand other goods and services

  30. Economic Impact Analysis: Three Types of Multiplier Effects • Direct effects: changes in industries to which a final demand change was made • Indirect effects: changes in other industries as they respond to the new demands of the directly affected industries • Induced effects: reflects changes in household spending from changes in income due to the changes in production

  31. Health Care’s Local Financial Linkages • Hospitals, nursing homes, doctors offices, etc… spend money locally • Local spending creates local jobs and local income • Examples include • Floral shops • Waste management • Legal and accounting services • Pharmacies • Some spending is non-local • Medical equipment • consulting
