14 Tourism Impacts

15 How visitor spending generates impact Travelers create direct economic value within a discreet group of sectors (e.g. recreation, transportation). This supports a relative proportion of jobs, wages, taxes, and GDP within each sector. Each directly affected sector also purchases goods and services as inputs (e.g. food wholesalers, utilities) into production. These impacts are called indirect impacts. Lastly, the induced impact is generated when employees whose incomes are generated either directly or indirectly by tourism, spend those incomes in the state economy. 15

19 Methodology and Background

20 Why quantify the tourism economy? By monitoring tourism s economic impact, policy makers can make informed decisions regarding the funding and prioritization of tourism development. It can also carefully monitor its successes and future needs. In order to do this, tourism must be measured in the same categories as other economic sectors i.e. tax generation, employment, wages, and gross domestic product. 20

21 What is this a challenge? Most economic sectors such as financial services, insurance, or construction are easily defined within a country s national accounts statistics. Tourism is not so easily measured because it is not a single industry. It is a demand-side activity which affects multiple sectors to various degrees. Tourism spans nearly a dozen sectors including lodging, recreation, retail, real estate, air passenger transport, food & beverage, car rental, taxi services, travel agents 21

22 Methods and data sources Domestic visitor expenditure estimates are provided at the state level by Longwoods International s representative survey of US travelers. These are broken out by sectors (lodging, transport at destination, food & beverage, retail, and recreation), by purpose (business and leisure), and by length of stay (day and overnight). Tourism Economics then adjusts these levels of spending based on a range of known measures of tourism activity: Overseas visitor spending (source: OTTI, TE) Canada visitor spending (source: Statistics Canada, TE) Room tax receipts Spending on air travel which accrues to all airports and locally-based airlines Gasoline purchases by visitors (source: TE calculation) Smith Travel Research data on hotel revenues Construction Value by McGraw-Hill Construction Industry data on employment, wages, GDP, and sales (source: BEA, BLS, Census) 22

23 Methods and data sources An IMPLAN model was compiled for the State of Wisconsin. This traces the flow of visitor-related expenditures through the local economy and their effects on employment, wages, and taxes. IMPLAN also quantifies the indirect (supplier) and induced (income) impacts of tourism. All results are benchmarked and cross-checked and adjusted based on the following: US Bureau of Labor Statistics and Bureau of Economic Analysis (employment and wages by industry) US Census (business sales by industry) The source of the employment and wage data is the Regional Economic Information System (REIS), Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce. All employment rankings are based on Bureau of Labor Statistics (ES202/QCEW) data. 23

24 Local data sources County, town, city, and village data were then compiled for all Wisconsin Municipalities. This included premier resort tax receipts, room taxes, property taxes. In certain cases, zip code level data on employment, income, and establishments was analyzed by sector for lodging, food & beverage, retail, recreation, and transportation from the US Census Zip Business Patterns as a further anchor to the Tourism Economics model. Seasonal employment trends were then analyzed to determine tourismdriven peak employment. Multipliers were scaled from the state level to the local level using industry and population data to determine linkages and leakages through the supply chain and consumption patterns. 24
