The present research applied a novel approach for analyzing the impacts of tourism-related incomes within the whole of the local economy. The novelty of the analysis is given by the fact that the research was carried out on the basis of the district administrative units of the Northern Hungary region. The analysis examined the share of tourism-related incomes in the local economies of the respective districts. The results showed that tourism has an impact on the level of local development, but at a different level in the cease of the different settlements. The results furthermore implied that by itself, even well-developed tourism is not enough to guarantee local development. Local development depends on several different factors, and in the case of all other positive processes, tourism can contribute to the development level. According to the results, tourism has a multiplier effect: it has the most positive impact in locations where the whole economy is well developed-in these locations, tourism can significantly strengthen the already prospering economic processes.
