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 benefit payments, and describes how each additional benefit dollar affects a region's economy.

    Note: Areas with larger GRP and concentrations of CalPERS benefit recipients tend to generate larger dollar economic impacts, while areas with smaller GRPs generate smaller dollar economic impacts. On a per capita basis, areas with large GRPs tend to mitigate the economic impact of CalPERS benefit payments because the payments represent a smaller share of the area's overall economy.
