The increase in household income attributed to expenditures by Utah motor vehicle tourists from June 15 to September 5, 1969, was estimated using income multipliers from input-output analysis. Tourist expenditures were gathered through the distribution of postage-paid diaries to non-residents entering Utah. Expenditures were also segregated for Cache County, Utah. The income multipliers from state and county input-output models were used to estimate the impact of applying the state model to county data.
Approximately 927,250 tourist parties to Utah spent an estimated $37,842,81 increasing household income $65,018,557. Likewise, approximately 67,709 tourist parties spent an estimated $798,966 in Cache County. The income multipliers from the county model indicated a $1,063,728 increase in household income in Cache County, while the state model estimated this increase to be 44 percent greater.
