Economic Impact Reports

The 2021 Military Economic Impact Analysis is an update of the last analysis completed in 2017. This report was to be released in the spring/summer of 2020, but due to the COVID pandemic, the release was delayed a year.

Like the previous five analyses, the purpose is to provide business and civic leaders, government officials, and the public at large, a complete picture of the very significant contribution that area veterans and the military and defense programs make to the economy of East Tennessee.
