East Hill Notes: Cornell 2018, by the numbers


Cornell’s Office of Community Relations and campus colleagues annually compile data with local economic components from the University’s most recent fiscal year.

In the past, staff and consultants compiled a larger economic impact report that could run more than 100 pages. The downside was by the time many datasets were gathered and published, they were either somewhat dated, and-or didn’t reflect current economic conditions.

This straightforward economic snapshot provides community members with nuts-and-bolts facts on key fronts, like payroll, purchasing, and property taxes.
This one-pager is shared with local elected, appointed, non-profit and business leaders, along with Cornell colleagues in Albany and Washington.

It’s a valuable and interesting project with the emphasis on “local,” and we appreciate the thanks and positive feedback received in recent days.
