New Report: UC Davis’ Annual Economic Impact More Than $12.5B Statewide

University Generates $6.8B in Economic Activity for Region

"A new economic impact report for the University of California, Davis, shows that the university is a major economic driver for the Sacramento region and for California. UC Davis generated $12.56 billion in statewide economic activity and supported 68,900 jobs in 2019.

The economic impact report and a local fiscal impact report will be presented at the annual meeting of the university, the city of Davis and Yolo County at the city council chambers tonight (Nov. 30).

The economic impact analysis — which measured how direct employment and spending by the university rippled through the local, regional and statewide economies — found that every dollar UC Davis spent in California generated an additional $1.10 of economic activity in the state. For every UC Davis job, the university’s economic activity led to the creation of another non-UC Davis job in California. The report did not analyze economic impact beyond California."
