The AIPC / Ipsos Economic Impact Calculator addresses the fundamental requirement for most centres to measure and report their overall EI to owners, investors and, communities in a consistent, efficient and cost-effective way. Its benefits include:
- a centre-specific orientation that captures all relevant spending
- consistent definitions that ensure comparability, repeatability and credibility
- the global credibility of a respected international research leader
- a minimal cost due to AIPC investment
HOW IT WORKS
The AIPC/Ipsos program is supported by an extensive guidebook - available free of charge to all AIPC members - that covers everything from data gathering within recognized statistical parameters to sample sizes, sources of input and categories of business to be sampled.
The actual data gathering according to the prescribed template and using forms provided by Ipsos, will be the responsibility of the centre itself, which it can do either by using its own staff or contracting it out to Ipsos who will then organize member input data, run the model and prepare an analysis to assure the credibility of the result.
The Program Package Outline and updated AIPC Standardized Economic Impact Program Guidebook* are now available (*via the Members Only section). The Guidebook and other Basic Program Components are available free of charge for AIPC Members, and the Basic Program Support cost is charged by Ipsos at 6.000 USD. For details: see the Program Package Outline.
A SPECIAL OFFER
In order to ensure a solid cross section of member results to support the role of the new model as the “go-to” program for consistent and credible EI numbers, the AIPC Board has agreed to support a limited number of AIPC members through March 31, 2018. This means that the first 10 members that sign up to carry out the program before this date will have 25% of the base program costs paid by AIPC – a 1.500 USD value – and the full support of the Ipsos team in organizing sampling schedules, assisting in program execution and running the final data – essentially everything you will need to deliver results short of carrying out the on-site interviews.
Interested members should contact the AIPC Secretariat soon in order to access this limited offer.
This is a huge opportunity to perform one of the most important calculations you need for performance reporting with both the guidance and credibility of Ipsos and AIPC behind you.
