Casino Gaming and Local Employment Trends (ICPSR 1297)
Principal Investigator(s): Garrett, Thomas A., Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
Casino gambling has become a major industry in the United States. Economic development, especially through increases in employment, is the primary justification for casino development in a local area. This article estimates the employment effects of casino gambling for six counties in the Midwest and southern United States using ARIMA forecasting models. The results suggest that rural counties that adopt casino gambling as a major industry experience significant gains in payroll and household employment. The effects are less pronounced in urban counties, partly due to the higher volatility of their employment data relative to those rural counties.
