The Economic Impact of Texas State University-San Marcos 
MetadataShow full metadata
The impact of Texas State on the local, regional and state economics is greater than the direct spending by the University since money spent by the University is spent by employees, businesses, and their workers. As these expenditures give rise to additional business spending, this sets in motion a chain reaction of additional indirect and induced spending. These economics ripple effects impact the local, regional and state economics, and economists use an economic technique known as Input-Output Analysis to analyze the multiple impacts that arise. The IMPLAN input-output model was used to carry out this economic impact study.
