Texas Travel Impacts
This detailed travel impact analysis for Texas shows the economic benefits of travel and tourism for counties, regions and the state overall. The analysis includes direct travel spending, earnings, employment and the resulting municipal, county and state tax revenue. Our findings include both domestic and international travel, and a full ten years of comparable figures are provided for trending purposes. Our approach is unique in that it relies primarily on tax, earnings, employment and other data reported at the county level, and for this reason does not rely primarily on survey and other data that can be difficult to gather reliably at this level of detail. This approach allows for particularly reliable results for use by local constituencies. The report also describes gross domestic product (GDP) findings at the state level, and provides comparisons with other major export-oriented industries in Texas.
