Over the past few years several states have developed community and fiscal impact modeling systems. Beginning with the VIP model in Virginia, which was developed by Tom Johnson1 , and followed by Idaho, Iowa, and Missouri2 , several mid-western states established or enhanced their capacities to conduct community labor force and fiscal impact analysis. To date, models also have been developed or finalized in Kansas, Minnesota, Nevada, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Models are under construction in Texas, Ohio, and Vermont. A model will soon be developed for Oregon.
