The primary measures of change in economic activity in an economic impact analysis are 1) spending and 2) jobs. The direct economic impact comes from the ongoing operations of Fort Lee and the household and visitor spending of those associated with the installation. For example, for military personnel stationed at the installation full time, the direct impact is measured as the number of military personnel and the estimated household spending they and their spouses generate in the region. In addition to the direct economic impact, there are other layers of impact that can be felt in the region: indirect and induced economic impacts.
