Economic Impact


Economic Impact Assessments (EIA) are designed to look beyond immediate customer volume and revenue.  The core measurements are:

• Additionality: expediture that would not occur, but for your project
• Displacement: expenditure transferred from other places or times to your project
• Job retention/creation: full-time equivalent jobs created or retained through net economic value (additionality minus displacement) of your project
• Multiplier: a percentage added to net economic value to recognise that revenue is recycled through the wider economy

EIAs can be undertaken as a desktop study, relying on averages and estimates.
Or primary research can be undertaken to measure the actual expenditures associated with your project.
