This report assesses the contributions of The Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI) to the economy of the State of Ohio during the specific period of its 1998-2015 fiscal years. The study was conducted by the Center for Economic Development at Cleveland State University’s Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs. The impact of OAI is described here in terms of the employment, labor income, value added, output, and tax revenue generated because of OAI’s presence in the state. The impacts of OAI’s four main operating functions were assessed, including OAI operating expenses, OAI employee compensation, support to industry research and development, and support for students and universities. These components of the impact are based on data from audits summarizing OAI’s financial activities from fiscal year 1998 through fiscal year 2015 due to IMPLAN data availability.
