Abstract
The purpose of the study is to provide a brief but comprehensive assessment of the socio-economic impacts of each of 44 military installations on its host community. It is an update of a similar study completed two years ago. The study like the earlier one, makes available a readily accessible and comprehensive compilation of current relevant demographic and socio-economic data on a large number of domestic military installations and their host communities, as well as an analytical framework within which these data are analyzed. The results are written again in three Project Reports: this one summarizes the analytical approach, which is unchanged from the original, and summarizes the overall results of the individual assessments, while the following two respectively contain these updated assessments and the more recent data that were analyzed. Much of the attention in this study, as in the earlier one, is one the impacts (direct and the first-round indirect) of the expenditures by military installations for goods and services and on wages and salaries paid to military personnel and civilian workers. The fairly simple macroeconomic analytical approach used earlier is outlined in this report, and the various estimates of the impact measures (and the data used to derive the model parameters) are briefly discussed.
