Footnotes

  1. Computed by dividing the economic impact per number of benefit recipients relative to Gross Regional Product (GRP) per capita. This value represents the magnitude of the economic impacts generated by CalPERS pension benefit payments, and describes how pension benefit payments affect a region's economy.

    Note: While areas with large GRPs have larger economic impacts from pension benefit spending, areas with smaller GRPs, relative to CalPERS pension benefits, tend to have a greater economic impact because the payments represent a larger share of the area's overall economy.
