To help inform decisionmaking in the event that the Army experiences significant changes to its budget, the U.S. Army Quadrennial Defense Review Office asked the RAND Arroyo Center to provide an empirical understanding of how Army spending affects communities and states. The main report, The Army's Local Economic Effects, presents findings on the economic activity supported by Army spending at the local level. This appendix is an ancillary volume. It provides detailed results of the analysis, organized by state and congressional district. It includes descriptions of the overall economic effects for each state, then delves into more detail by fiscal year, from 2012 through 2014, concluding with a parsing of the data by congressional district, providing maps and calculations. This volume includes Mississippi through Wyoming.
This research was sponsored by the U.S. Army, G-8, and conducted within the Strategy and Resources Program, a part of the RAND Arroyo Center.
