This is the second report of the Economic Impact of Traveler Expenditures on Minnesota prepared by Davidson‐Peterson Associates. This report covers traveler expenditures made in Minnesota during the 12‐month period from June 2007 through May 2008. A similar 12‐month study was conducted for the same period in 2005‐2006.
The purpose of this study is to measure the economic benefits Minnesota residents andgovernments derive from the dollars spent by travelers in the state.
Davidson‐Peterson Associates was hired to conduct a year‐long study which was a joint project with Explore Minnesota Tourism, the University of Minnesota Tourism Center* and the Minnesota Arrowhead, Minnesota Heartland and Southern Minnesota Tourism Associations and the Metro Tourism Committee. Davidson‐Peterson Associates was commissioned to conduct a “bottom up” analysis of traveler expenditures in Minnesota and their impact on the economy of the state during the period June 2007 through May 2008. (See Appendix A, Sections A through C for details on the “bottom‐up” approach.)
