How Will The USS Vinson Impact San Diego's Economy?

So we currently have 3 (of 10) Nimitz class carriers here.
I'm curious about crew count. Press releases state an influx of 3500 crew, but I've often seen Nimitz class crew numbers around 5000.
1. Can anyone help clarify the disparity?
2. When Nimitz leaves San Diego in December how many crew will be leaving here? Are we left flush, or will we realize a net loss or gain in San Diego based crew?

How will the $400MM windfall be impacted by Nimitz leaving port this year?
