Economic Impact of Intel Oregon Operations, 2012

ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF INTEL’S OREGON OPERATIONS, 2009, OCTOBER 2011
1. INTRODUCTION
Intel Corporation (“Intel”) commissioned ECONorthwest to estimate the economic impacts associated with Intel’s Oregon operations. This is the third analysis of Intel’s economic impacts in this state. ECONorthwest issued its first analysis, covering Intel’s Oregon operations from its inception in 1974 through 1997, in October 1998. The second analysis covered the 1998 to 2001 time period, and was released in February 2003. This current effort measures the economic impacts associated with Intel’s Oregon operations between 2005 and 2009, with a focus on the economic impacts in 2009.
The remainder of this report has two sections. The first section provides an explanation of economic impact modeling and terminology, and highlights the key findings of our analysis. The second section provides additional background information about Intel’s Oregon operations.

2. ECONOMIC IMPACT METHODS AND KEY FINDINGS
Economists have developed several approaches for measuring the economic impacts or contributions of companies on the communities in which they operate. The most common method estimates the economic impacts associated with the company’s spending on payroll, non-payroll goods and services, capital investments, and contributions and taxes. This method is often referred to as the “expenditure approach.”
