Economic Impact Report

Demonstrating the Economic Value of Contra Costa Community College District

In the Fall of 2018, the District worked with Economic Modeling Specialist International (Emsi) to determine the economic impact the District and its colleges had on Contra Costa County in fiscal year 2016-17. In December 2018, the report concluded that the District has a significant positive impact on the local economy and is a sound investment from multiple perspectives including students, taxpayers and the community as a whole. In order to conduct the report, Emsi used labor market data to provide useful information that helps the District understand the connection between our economy and our communities.
