Economic Impact of the U.S. Poultry Industry

11/01/2022

In an October 31st release, USPOULTRY, the National Chicken Council United Egg Producers and the National Turkey Federation presented the results of economic studies on the contribution of the major segments of the U.S. poultry industry.

 

It is calculated that the chicken, turkey and egg industries are an important sector within U.S. agriculture.  Collectively, the poultry industry provides 2.01 million jobs, generates $125.6 billion in wages, $556 billion in economic activity and $33.7 billion in government revenue.

 

The chicken industry provides 1.52 million jobs, $94.9 billion in wages, $417 billion in economic activity and $25.5 billion in government revenues.  The turkey industry provides 362,437 jobs, $22.7 billion in wages, $99.5 billion in economic activity and $6.1 billion in government revenue.

 

The Economic Impact Study was funded by USPOULTRY and conducted by John Dunham and Associates.  The Study was updated using data from 2022 and applied the most current methodology available.

 

In commenting on the report, John Starkey, President of USPOULTRY, stated, “We are pleased to continue providing this valuable tool across the industry that shows the positive economic impact the poultry industry has in our Nation and communities.”
