Veterinary Medicine in New England: State-by-State Industry Characteristics and Economic Impacts
The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University commissioned a study to analyze the characteristics and economic impact of the veterinary medical industry in the six-state New England region. The UMass Donahue Institute studied key veterinary medicine sectors, the nature of veterinary medicine industry activities, the scale and scope of activities in industry sectors, veterinary workforce demographics and projected workforce needs, and economic impact. The economic impact analysis presents outputs and employment that result from the veterinary medicine expenditures in each of the six states and in the New England region. Unless otherwise noted, all findings are for 2006, the latest year for which data are available.
