Summary

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects--both economic and educational--of Tarrant County Junior College (TCJC) on the community around it. The study, conducted in 1969-70, involved all students and employees of the college (the questionnaires used are included as appendices of this study). Direct economic influences on the area include: (1) TCJC students spent more than $35 million a year on food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and entertainment; (2) full-time employees and spouses earned over $7.5 million of which at least 80% of the net was spent in the county; (3) architectural and construction firms in the county have been paid about $21 million by the college; and (4) TCJC annually spends about $1.5 million for goods and services to county manufacturing, service, and sales organizations. Charts and tables detailing these and other direct economic influences are included. In addition, there are many indirect economic influences of the college such as providing the employment sector with better-trained people, however, such influences are only suggested by this study.
