The purpose of the current Operating Report is to estimate the full economic impact of the first year of operations of the Plainridge Park Casino (PPC) on the Massachusetts economy. In order to do that, the UMass Donahue Institute’s Economics and Public Policy Research unit (UMDI) looked at two key aspectsof operational effects. First, they worked directly with PPC to determine the economic footprint of PPC’soperations, including employment, wages, vendor spending, and fiscal impacts from taxes and otherassessments paid to the state. Second, they analyzed the way that shifts in patron spending as a result of the expansion of gaming would affect the state.
