Economic Impact Whitepaper  (2nd Edition)

This revision is dated October, 2010. It is important to note the paper was developed and then revised ten years later by persons engaged in the sports event industry and not by professional researchers. This is a deliberate choice: we are more concerned with the need for estimates and their practical application than in an academic discussion. Much is made of the importance of clearly defining the methods used to create an estimate. And, we remain concerned as an industry about the continuing temptation to treat estimates as fact when no one can know what will or might have happened. Release Date: October 8, 2010

Calculating and Reporting Economic Impact Results: A Guide for NASC Members

Use this whitepaper as a guide when using the NASC Economic Impact Calculator. 

The issue of how to calculate and report economic impact results has long been an issue of contention, and certainly so among the membership of the National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC). In an effort to empower NASC members with a better handle of how to calculate and report economic impact results, Sportsimpacts has created a tool that – if used properly – will allow NASC members to approximate the economic impact of events, and to report on its findings properly. Subsequently, this white paper should be considered a supplement to the tool in the hopes that it will guide the user successfully through the use of the tool.

Prepared by National Association of Sports Commissions In conjunction with Dr. Patrick Rishe, Sportsimpacts, Webster University. Release Date: August 2007
