Regional economic multipliers

BEA prepares estimates of economic multipliers for any state or county or combination thereof on a reimbursable basis. The multipliers estimate the effects of the changes in the output of one or more industries in an area on the output, employment, and labor earnings in the other industries in that area. The regional multipliers are derived using the Regional Input-Output Modeling System (RIMS II) and are based on estimates of local area personal income and on the national input-output accounts.
