Economic Analysis Results

Here we provide links to results from the data inventory and economic contribution analyses, as well as predictions of coastal economic activity for the year 2020. You can view the full report here.

Data Inventory of the absolute levels of ocean-related employment, wages and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the eleven U.S. coastal regions and the thirty states and 444 counties they contain.

  • Regional maps of ocean-related GDP and employment for coastal counties: Figures 6-19.
  • Business establishments, employment, wages, and GDP by coastal region, state and county: Appendix A1.
  • GDP by economic sector for individual coastal counties: Appendix A2.
  • The relative share of ocean-related employment, wages and GDP for the eleven coastal regions, and the states and counties they comprise: Figures 20-21, Table 5.
  • Regional maps showing the share of GDP and employment related to ocean activities for each coastal county's overall economy: Figures 22-35.

Regional Economic Contributions or impacts, including indirect and induced multiplier effects, from ocean-related activities in coastal counties as estimated with IMPLAN regional multipliers.

  • GDP and employment contributions by U.S. coastal region: Figures 36-37.
  • GDP and employment for thirty U.S. coastal states: Figures 38-39.
  • GDP, wages, and employment contributions by U.S. coastal region: Table 6.
  • GDP, wages, and employment contributions for thirty U.S. coastal states: Table 7.
  • Top 50 coastal counties for GDP, wages, and employment contributions: Table 8.
  • Total contributions to Gross Domestic Product by ocean-related economic sectors for U.S. coastal regions, states and counties: Appendix A3.

Trends and Forecast of Ocean Sector Gross Domestic Product - Statistical forecasts of ocean-related Gross Domestic Product in 2020 were estimated on historical county-level data for the six ocean sectors, and then summarized by U.S. coastal region, state and county.

  • Statistically significant predicted changes for county-level ocean-sector GDP, by U.S. coastal region and state: Table 9.
  • Statistically significant predicted changes in exceeding 50 percent for county-level ocean-sector GDP, by U.S. coastal region and state: Table 10.
  • Top 50 county-sectors with largest predicted positive (%) change in GDP for 2020: Table 11.
  • Top 50 county-sectors with largest negative predicted (%) change in GDP for 2020: Table 12.
  • Forecast of ocean-related GDP in 2020 for U.S. coastal regions and states: Table 13.
  • Change and forecast of ocean-related GDP for U.S. coastal regions, states and counties: Appendix A4.

Trends and Forecast of Port Shipping Activity – An inventory and change analysis of historical port shipping activity, and statistical forecasts of future activity to 2020, at national, regional, state and county levels. Forecasts were estimated using ordinary least squares regression on historical county-level data for the six ocean sectors.

  • Historical and predicted port shipments by weight: Table 14.
  • Historical and predicted port shipments by value: Table 15.

Trends in commercial fisheries—An inventory and change in historical commercial fish landings at national, regional, state, and county levels.

  • Commercial fishery landings by weight, 1990-2010. Table 16.
  • Commercial fishery landings by value, 1990-2010. Table 17.

Trends and Forecast of Cruise Ship Activity - Inventory and percent change of cruise ship passenger nights by port with statistical forecasts of future activity to 2020, at county level. Forecasts estimated using ordinary least squares regression on historical county-level data.

  •  Cruise ship passenger nights – past trends and future predictions: Table 18.
