Using Economic Impact Data
Calculate Your Organization’s Local Impact
In Americans for the Arts’ online Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 Calcuator, enter your community’s population, your organization’s total expenses, and the total annual attendance to see how your organization impacts your city/town’s economy (or use the population of 500,000 to see how your organization impacts Sonoma County).
You can also estimate the economic impact of a single event: input the chosen population number (your city/town or county), the total expenses of the event, and the total attendance at the event to see its local economic impact (in expenditures, jobs, household income, and local and state government revenue).
