STUDY SHOWS POULTRY INDUSTRY PROVIDES 1.3 MILLION JOBS, $265.6 BILLION IN ECONOMIC IMPACT
Source: U.S. Poultry & Egg Assn news release

The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, National Chicken Council, National Turkey Federation, and United Egg Producers have made available a new economic impact study and four new websites that highlight the positive impact the poultry industry has on jobs, wages, and federal and state revenue in the United States. A dynamic and integral part of the national economy, the poultry industry collectively provides 1,337,030 jobs, $63 billion in wages, $265.6 billion in total economic activity, and $23.4 billion in government revenue.

The study breaks down poultry into three subcategories: chicken, turkey and eggs. Key economic data from each are as follows:

The chicken industry provides 1,010,250 jobs, $47 billion in wages, $197.5 billion in economic activity, and $17.2 billion in government revenue.

The turkey industry provides 147,890 jobs, $6.9 billion in wages, $29.5 billion in economic activity, and $3.1 billion in government revenue.

The egg industry provides 123,100 jobs, $6.1 billion in wages, $25.8 billion in economic activity, and $2.1 billion in government revenue.

"We are pleased to be able to provide this valuable tool across the industry that demonstrates the positive economic impact we have on our communities," said John Starkey, president of USPOULTRY.

The data is hosted on interactive websites that can be viewed collectively or by individual product, and then sorted nationally, by state, congressional district, state house district or state senate district. For more information about the U.S. poultry industry's economic impact, visit:
