The total dollars spent by your
nonprofit arts and culture organization and its audiences;
event-related spending by arts and culture audiences is
estimated using the average dollars spent per person by
arts event attendees in similarly populated communities.
The total number of full-time
equivalent (FTE) jobs in your community that are
supported by the expenditures made by your arts and culture
organization and/or its audiences. An FTE can be one
full-time employee, two half-time employees, four
employees who work quarter-time, etc.
The total dollars paid to
community residents as a result of the expenditures
made by your arts and culture organization and/or its
audiences. Household income includes salaries, wages,
and proprietary income.
The total dollars received by
your local and state governments (e.g., license fees,
taxes) as a result of the expenditures made by your arts
and culture organization and/or its audiences.
When using estimates derived from this calculator,
always keep the following caveats in mind: (1) the results of this analysis
are based upon the averages of similarly populated communities, (2) input/output
models were customized for each of these similarly populated communities, providing
very specific employment, household income, and government revenue data, and
(3) your results are therefore estimates, and should not be used as a substitute
for conducting an economic impact study that is customized for your community.
