3 Methodology Document Individual and Collective Port-Related Economic Benefits  Port-related benefits: port operations, facilities and activities (including channel and basin dredging)  Port tenants and related non-local visitation Identify Direct, Indirect & Induced Impacts (jobs, income, value added, output) Describe Economic Performance Benchmarks Utilize Proven & Generally Accepted methods

4 IMPLAN = IMPact for PLANining (economic input/output model) IMPLAN Sectors: up to 440 detailed industry or commodity types (i.e., sector #17 = commercial fishing) Employment: IMPLAN includes full and part-time job estimates; tends to be higher than Oregon Emp. Dept. estimates that report only “covered employment” subject to unemployment insurance taxes. Direct Impacts: jobs, output, GDP, taxes attributed to port operations, port tenants, prior port land sales, port facilities (Marina, boat launch) and port activities (dredge permitting). Indirect Impacts: business-to-business economic activity (i.e., suppliers, service inputs, such as accounting and legal firms, daycare, catering, etc.) Induced Impacts: attributed to household spending their earnings Labor Income: IMPLAN includes total payroll costs, labor income, and benefits (i.e., health benefits payments, 401-k payments) Output: annual sales/revenues less depreciation and year-end inventory Value Added or GDP: gross domestic product. Includes labor compensation, proprietor income, business profits and federal/state/local tax payments Key Definitions 4
