Economic Impact of the North Dakota University System

The economic impact of the North Dakota University System and its students on the state has risen dramatically over the past 12 years and now stands at an estimated $4.4 billion for Fiscal Year 2011, compared to $3.7 billion in FY 2009, according to the recent Economic Impact of the North Dakota University System report.

This is a result of $1.6 billion in student spending and NDUS expenditures, coupled with secondary economic impacts. The system employed more than 11,000 workers, educated about 48,000 headcount students, and the expenditures supported more than 11,000 secondary jobs.

The FY 2011 report was conducted by North Dakota State University's Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics and is similar to other studies done in 1999, 2004, 2008 and 2009. Report authors Dean A. Bangsund, Randall C. Coon and Nancy M. Hodur used the North Dakota Input-Output Model to estimate economic impact.

The authors concluded that the state's colleges and universities are able to leverage more than $2.30 from external sources for every dollar of state appropriated funds. Much of those non-appropriated funds come from outside sources and could be considered new money to the state.

The Nov. 15, 2012, University System news release provides a summary of the 2011 report findings.
