Economic Impact Study

An economic impact study recently conducted for Ohio University indicates that Ohio University, its students and statewide alumni added $2.9 billion in income to the state economy in 2016-17. That represents 0.5 percent of Ohio’s total Gross State Product. OHIO’s $2.9 billion of economic impact supported 40,021 jobs, which means that one of every 174 jobs in the State of Ohio is supported by the activities of OHIO and its students.

Conducted by Economic Modeling Specialists International (Emsi), a leading provider of economic impact studies, the study demonstrates the value of Ohio University and how the institution positively influences both the lives of students and the growth of the state’s economy.
