Nightlife created 48,000 jobs and brings in $55 million in tax revenue in San Francisco, according to a new study.

The study, the first ever on how nightlife in San Francisco contributes to the local economy, will be presented to an economic committee of the Board of Supervisors Monday.

In addition to creating jobs and bringing in tax revenue, nightlife contributes $4.2 million in consumer spending in San Francisco, with an estimated 80 million people spending money, the study says.

Supervisor Scott Wiener requested the study in 2011. Wiener wanted the study to focus on the cultural and economic benefits of the city's nightlife.

The study did not take into account the cost of security and policing.
