This report presents estimates of defense purchases during calendar years 1998-2003 from 50 industries that are major defense suppliers. The report also provides projections of defense-related employment and of defense and defense-related spending for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia during 1998-2003. The estimates are based on the Presidents budget submission of February 1997, and on the geographic distribution of the major components of defense spending in the recent past. A description of the model and data used to generate the estimates may be found in supporting documentation. The figures reported here are projections they do not necessarily reflect what actual defense expenditures will be in various industries or states in future years. Purchases from particular industries will depend upon the size and composition of the defense budget enacted by the Congress the location of purchases will be determined not only by the level of defense spending, but also by the location of industries and by competition among firms within industries, both for prime contracts and for subcontracts. The projections therefore serve as benchmarks they describe the future pattern of defense and defense-related expenditures, assuming that each states shares of the various components of defense activity remain as they were in the recent past.
