This report is in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) received from the Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism and the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, dated May 17, 2004.

The overall objective of this study is to provide detailed analyses of the impact of the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism's (CRT) major divisions on Louisiana's economy and quality of life for it's citizens. The study provides: detailed economic impact statements, return on investment and return on objectives for each majordivision of the Department. To that end, assesment and analysis of curently existing data was conducted, as well as development of methods to collect data that was deemed lacking in each of the divisions, including mail, telephone and internet surveys. In addition, a Travel and Tourism Satellite Account for Louisiana was developed. The end result is a quantitative and/or qualitative assesment of the impact of each of the Department's divisions and a determination of the overall economic impact of tourism to Louisiana.
