Working across the economy to deliver in-depth insights and customized strategies for the public and private sector.
To better understand our economic present and future, we publish a variety of forecasts and commentaries that deliver global, national, and local insight.
Each month, we link our own econometric predictions to data released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and state labor market departments to identify important changes in employment across industries and regions.
This succinct, quarterly outlook delivers up-to-date analysis of leading indicators driving the national and state economies, including GDP growth, employment, housing and commercial real estate markets, taxable sales, international trade, and more.
Objective, hype-free insights into the global, U.S., and California economies are provided here. A wide range of topics are covered, offering clear, straightforward economic analysis. Migration trends in California, the economic outlook, Federal Reserve decisions, and the real estate cycle are among the subjects explored, serving as a reliable source for insightful and timely economic commentary.
This report analyzes monthly data released by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Foreign Trade Division, pinpointing important trends in California’s import/export industry and identifying potential effects on the state’s economy.
