MINOT, N.D. — The military is slated to release a study that shows Minot Air Force Base’s impact on the local economy.

The annual report is slated to be released Thursday.

The military says the base contributed a record amount to the local economy in the fiscal 2012.

The estimated total of $522.6 million was about $29 million more than the amount in fiscal 2011.

There are about 12,800 active-duty personnel, family members and civilians currently at the base, which has B-52 bombers and also oversees nuclear missiles throughout the countryside. About half of the population lives off base.
