This report discusses the DART systems' sales tax revenues. In addition to the fare box, DART's operations are funded through a one percent sales tax levied by member cities on all retail transactions as permitted by state law. During the 1990s, DART's sales tax receipts grew at a healthy clip. But between 2001 and 2003, taxable sales in the DART service area declined. By contrast, for many non-DART suburban cities, taxable sales continued to expand during the 2001-2003 period. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, looks at three possible explanations for these trends.
This paper discusses economic activities associated with the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport. DFW International Airport is one of the largest generators of economic activity in the Metroplex with operations creating more than $14 billion in economic activity and supporting 269,000 jobs in the region. This analysis, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, focuses on the economic activity generated through the Airport's commitment to ensuring its suppliers reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the DFW Metroplex.
This report discusses the economic and fiscal impacts of Baylor Regional Medical Center Grapevine. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, outlines the regional economic and fiscal impacts from Baylor-Grapevine's construction spending and ongoing operations. Estimates of the economic impacts are calculated using the DFW model of the IMPLAN impact modeling system developed by the Minnesota IMPLAN Group. This model, which is well-regarded by academic and professional researchers, provides reasonable and conservative estimates of direct, indirect, and induced impacts.
This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the investment in hard infrastructure that will be required to keep Texas a vibrant and expanding part of the global economy-most especially a grid computing network connected by fiber optic cable.
Homelessness has significant economic as well as social consequences for the City of Dallas. While offering compassion to the homeless, this report also acknowledges that the overwhelming presence of homeless persons on the streets of downtown has negative economic impacts on individual businesses, the prospects for redevelopment, and the city's finances. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses theses aspects.
This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines selected characteristics of the labor force available to firms located in the southern area of the City of Dallas, Texas. The report also compares occupational hiring patterns for a specified group of industries selected as targets of opportunity for recruitment and economic development efforts of the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce along with matching labor force availability. In assessing labor force availability and characteristics, we have relied on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor at the zip code level.
This report gives an overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth area's long-term water and transportation needs. Recognizing the importance of a reliable long-term water supply, the Dallas/Fort Worth region has invested heavily in reservoirs and transmission facilities over the past 50 years. Indeed, the dramatic population and employment growth enjoyed by the Metroplex over the past several decades would not have occurred absent an abundant and reliable supply of fresh water for residential and commercial uses. Despite the foresightedness of the region's leaders, according to the Texas Water Development Board the region may soon find itself facing a water deficit. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the implications of the DFW area's long-term water and transportation needs.
