Table 7: Projected National Payroll by Region and Club Type
VI. Impact on Local Communities In addition to the impact of club payrolls on local communities, CMAA member-managed clubs also serve as significant economic engines in their local and regional communities, with clubs spending almost $5.7 billion within the states where they are based, representing approximately 82 percent of all their product and service purchases. More specifically, clubs spent $2.7 billion on products and services within their local communities, and an additional $3 billion within their state.
Clubs in the West were, on average, spending more within their state (88 percent) than clubs in other regions. However, even clubs in the Southwest which had the lowest comparative in-state expenditure, were still making close to three-quarters (73 percent) of their product and service purchases within the state.
Figure 2 shows the percentage of in-state spending on products and services by clubs within each region.
