A research firm calculated that students who attend University spend about $2,760 each in the local economy for a total of $50.45 million. In total, the impact of their spending on the local economy is $63 million. Calculate the size of the student spending multiplier.



MPC =impact of spending/actual spend by students

or

£63m/£50.45m = 1.24876114965, rounding to two decimal places we end up with

£63m/£50.45m = 1.25

So in this instance the multiplier is 1.25.
