* | Agricultural field / vegetable garden | Construction Multiplier index | USA:NYC: All () | 1.54 | unitless coefficient | To find the multiplier we took the average of several different multiplier estimates from projects in the city of New York. The projects were the redevelopment of ground zero, Williamsburg toll construction, NYU proposed construction plan, Proposed Cornell construction of an Energy Recovery linac facility, The northeastern energy direct project, and the Long Island – New York City Offshore Wind Project. The way multipliers were created was by taking the direct payments plus indirect and induced effects divided by the direct payment. We then took an average of the resulting multipliers to get a general multiplier. The Math behind this is: (1.60+1.75+1.12+1.60+1.63+1.55)/6=1.54 |
