A socio-economic impact analysis (SIA) evaluates the impact of development on a community’s social
fabric and economic well-being. It relates to the economic and fiscal impact studies described later in this
report because characteristics of populations living in a project’s study area may affect the demands they
place on public services. In turn, this could affect the demand for (and thus the cost of) public services
associated with the proposed casino development.

For purposes of this chapter, the study focuses on Palmer. As appropriate, it also includes the nearby towns
of Wilbraham, Belchertown, Ware, Warren, Brimfield, Monson, Sturbridge, and Southbridge, and the cities of
Springfield and Chicopee.
