These establishments generated $21.0 billion in sales in 2002, which provided $7.2 billion in wages and salaries. When multiplier effects (i.e., indirect impacts) are included, the biotechnology industry contributed about $35.7 billion in output to the New England region. Through direct and indirect impacts on their respective state economies, the biotechnology establishments support a total of 221,390 jobs, which paid $13.0 billion in wages and salaries to workers across New England.
