Beacon Economics is a leading provider of economic impact studies and analysis. Our researchers specialize in illustrating the economic or financial effect that major sporting and entertainment events, public and private investments, public policies and programs, and institutions will have on neighborhoods, cities, or any geographic area.

Using proprietary models that are based on careful, realistic methodology, we accurately quantify direct, indirect, and induced economic impacts related to job creation (direct and indirect), tax revenue (local, state, and federal), and household and individual income.

Demonstrating your project’s benefits through sound analysis can generate powerful public approval, garnering support form constituencies ranging from government decision makers, investors, the media, to the community at large.
