Abstract : This report documents the regional economic effects of recreational use of Corps of Engineers (CE) water resource development projects. In 1994, over $12 billion was spent by visitors to engage in recreation at CE projects, resulting in $5 billion in income and over 186,000 jobs in industries directly supplying goods and services to CE visitors. Secondary effects of CE visitor spending accounted for an additional $15 billion in income and 410,000 jobs. The total effects of CE visitor spending in 1994 accounted for 0.4 percent of income and 1 in 200 jobs in the United States. Over 50 percent of CE visitor spending and associated economic effects occur in the following eight states: Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Indiana. (MM)
