Economic Contribution

 

The Dallas County Community College District is a good deal for business, taxpayers, students and society at large.

A study of the economic contribution of Texas community colleges has found that the Dallas County economy receives about $204.1 million in net added income each year due to DCCCD payroll and operations spending. 

Some of the highlights of the study:

  • Taxpayers see a rate of return of 8.2 percent on their investment in DCCCD.
  • For every dollar students invest in DCCCD, they receive a cumulative $5.50 in higher future income over the course of their working careers.
  • Texas benefits from improved health and reduced welfare, unemployment and crime, saving the public some $23.5 million per year.
