The study is based on the data from February 9, 2004!!

Income effect I (Variant I) (Variant II) € 8,715, ,825,000.-- Income effect II multiplicative associated (Variant I) (Variant II) incl. research € 13,147, ,188,300.-- Tourism effect (minimal variant) € 1,221, multiplicative associated (Variant I) (Variant II) € 1,832, ,828,107.-- (Volunteer work (minimal basis) € 416,500.--) (-“- (“expert variant”) € 511,000.--) Governmental income effect € 199,080.-- University/HE research € ,000.--
