Olympic Games Impact Study – London 2012

University of East London, 2008-2015

These four reports compile impact studies from 2008 to 2015 regarding the London 2012 Olympic Games. They have been conducted by the University of East London for the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (LOCOG).

The Olympic Games Impact Study was born from the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) desire to develop an objective and scientific analysis of the impact of each edition of the Games. The study provides both a record of the individual nature of each Olympiad and its host context, and a database of information that is common to all Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
