Jasmand S. and Maennig W. Regional income and employment effects of the 1972 Munich Summer Olympic Games, Regional Studies. Olympic Games may have impacts on income and employment in the host city, but no ex-post study has been carried out for European Olympic host cities to date. The present study closes this gap by using the 1972 Munich Summer Olympic Games. The data period examined in this study allows for analysis of long-term effects. In addition, the methodology avoids overestimating the significance of the effects. Finally, results are reported for all possible combinations of pre- and post-Olympic periods. The results were that income in Olympic regions grew significantly faster than in other German regions but, in contrast, no employment effects were identified.

Il est possible que les Jeux olympiques aient des incidences sur les revenus et l'emploi dans la ville-hote; or, jusqu'a present, aucune etude a posteriori n'a ete conduite pour des villes europeennes ayant accueilli les Jeux olympiques. La presente etude comble cette lacune en se consacrant aux Jeux olympiques de 1972 a Munich. La periode examinee pour cette etude permet d'analyser les effets a long terme. De plus, la methodologie utilisee evite de surestimer l'importance de ces effets. Enfin, nous donnons des resultats pour toutes les combinaisons possibles de periodes avant et apres des Jeux olympiques. On constate que les revenus dans les regions ou se sont deroules les Jeux ont augmente nettement plus rapidement que dans d'autres regions d'Allemagne. En revanche, on ne constate aucun effet sur l'emploi. Jeux olympiques Mega evenement Revenu Emploi Jasmand S. und Maennig W. Regionale Einkommens- und Beschaftigungseffekte der Olympischen Sommerspiele von Munchen 1972, Regional Studies. Olympische Spiele konnen Wirkungen auf Einkommen und Beschaftigung in den Ausrichterstadten haben. Die vorliegende Studie ist die erste entsprechende Untersuchung fur eine europaische Stadt. Die Lange der Untersuchungsperiode erlaubt erstmals die Analyse von langfristigen Effekten. Zudem vermeidet die verwendete Methode eine Uberschatzung der Signifikanz der Effekte.

Aunque los Juegos Olimpicos podrian influir en los ingresos y el empleo de la ciudad anfitriona, hasta ahora todavia no se ha llevado a cabo un estudio ex-post para los Juegos Olimpicos en ciudades anfitrionas europeas. El presente estudio cubre este vacio con un analisis sobre los Juegos Olimpicos de Munich de 1972. Examinando los datos durante ese periodo en este estudio podemos analizar los efectos a largo plazo. Ademas, la metodologia utilizada evita valorar en exceso la importancia de tales efectos. Finalmente, damos los resultados de todas las combinaciones posibles de los periodos antes y despues de los Juegos Olimpicos. Resultados: los ingresos en las regiones donde se celebraron los Juegos Olimpicos crecieron mucho mas rapido que los de otras regiones alemanas. En cambio no se observaron efectos en el empleo.
