Economic Benefits to Local Communities from National Park Visitation and Payroll, 2010
Daniel J. Stynes (au)
Provides estimates of Nat. Park Service (NPS) visitor spending for 2010 and extends the analysis to include impacts of the NPS payroll on local economies. The NPS received 281 million recreation visits in 2010. Park visitors spent $12 billion in local gateway regions. The contribution of this spending to the national economy is 258,400 jobs, $9.8 billion in labor income, and $17 billion in value added. In FY 2010 the NPS employed 26,031 people with a total payroll of $1,709 million in wages, salaries, and payroll benefits. Combining the impacts of non-local visitor spending and NPS payroll-related spending yields a total impact of 300,000 jobs nationally of which 189,000 are in the local regions around national parks.
