The Moore School of Business, University of South Carolina


S.C. Department of Natural Resources


This study documents the economic impact of activities associated with South Carolina's natural resources. Above all, the study finds that the economic activities most clearly tied to the state's resource base (not including agriculture) sustain $30 billion dollars in economic impact when measured in terms of annual state output—the total annual value of goods and services associated with natural resources related business activities. This total state impact supports 236,000 jobs.
