Economic Impact Of Tourism

Economic-impact analysis estimates the scope of the travel industry in the state’s economy. Measuring the economic impact of this industry is complex for two reasons. First, the travel industry is highly disaggregated, as a number of industries provide goods and services to travelers. Second, industries serving travelers also serve residents and non-travel related businesses. MOTT’s economic-impact study estimates the impact of traveler expenditures across many industries. The study also isolates travel-generated impacts from impacts driven by travelers and the industry that serves them. For purposes of these reports a traveler is defined as a person who travels 50 or more miles one way to a destination or who stays overnight.
