The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), National Chicken Council, National Turkey Federation and United Egg Producers have released an updated economic impact study that highlights the positive impact the poultry industry has on jobs, wages, and federal and state revenue in the United States.
The study breaks down poultry into three subcategories: chicken, turkey, and eggs.
The chicken industry provides 1,517,797 jobs, $94.9 billion in wages, $417 billion in economic activity, and $25.5 billion in government revenue. 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, and county. The study was conducted by John Dunham & Associates, based in New York City. The study was updated using the most current methodology available and uses data from 2022.
