The Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH) contributes in many ways to the economy of Alachua County and, more broadly, the state of Florida, through its activities. Some of these contributions are quite tangible while others are more intangible. While the intangible may be significant, this study uses FLMNH-provided data and RIMS II multipliers to quantify the tangible contributions to these two regions. The economic impact of the FLMNH is reported in terms of five different metrics: gross output, earnings, employment, value added, and tax revenues.
