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.
The District report encompasses data from Contra Costa College, Diablo Valley College and Los Medanos College.
College-specific reports have been conducted and are available on the Contra Costa College,
Diablo Valley College
and Los Medanos College websites.
