About the economic impact study


The UC Riverside 2004-05 Economic Impact and Benefits Report was completed in June 2006 by CB Richard Ellis Consulting. The direct, indirect and induced impacts of University spending, combined with student, visitor and retiree spending was assessed for the following geographies: City of Riverside, County of Riverside, the Inland Empire and the state of California. Updates to the economic impact information are done annually to reflect the most current fiscal year data.
