Timeshare Datashare: How Does the Timeshare US Employment Multiplier Compare?
Provided by ARDA International Foundation
The level of an industry's economic impact can be summarized by the industry's employment multiplier. The employment multiplier expresses the number of total jobs created by an industry throughout the economy for each direct job in the industry. The chart below shows that the employment multiplier for the timeshare industry is 2.28—meaning that for each job in the timeshare industry, there are 1.28 additional jobs created in other industries, resulting in 2.28 total jobs for each direct timeshare job.
Comparing the timeshare multiplier to the multipliers for other segments of the leisure travel industry, timeshares generally compare favorably. The employment impact for the timeshare industry (2.28) is higher than the multipliers for retail stores, restaurants, and hotels. However, the sightseeing and air travel industries have higher multipliers because these industries have high operating expenses per employee (related to fuel purchases and maintenance).
