Jobs Calculations Based on Economic Model
Direct jobs were reported to the federal government by agencies receiving ARRA funds per Section 1512.
Indirect and induced jobs were calculated by taking actual ARRA expenditures of Education, Transportation, Medicaid, and Family Safety Net ARRA spending* and using economic models** to calculate reliable estimates of indirect and induced jobs.
** Calculations performed by Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development using Minnesota IMPLAN models
Types of Job Creation Supported by the ARRA
Direct jobs are those supported by ARRA dollars. An example is a road construction worker on a highway project funded by ARRA
Indirect jobs are those that support ARRA funded work, but are not directly paid by ARRA dollars. An example is an employee at an asphalt company that supplies asphalt for the same highway project.
Induced jobs are created by increased consumer activity. For example, if the construction worker goes to a restaurant more now that he has a job and the restaurant hires a new employee, that employee is an induced job.
