This is the second report of the Economic Impact of Traveler Expenditures on the Southern Region prepared by Davidson‐Peterson Associates. The research approach employed is designed to capture economic impact data (i.e., economic impact of traveler expenditures on the state of Minnesota) and traveler profile data concurrently. This report covers traveler expenditures made in the Southern Region during the 12‐month period from June 2005 through May 2006. The primary purpose of this study is to measure the economic benefits the Southern Region residents and governments derive from the dollars spent by travelers in the region across a 12‐month time period.
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.
