Regional Economic Profiles

How Does Your Local Economy Stack Up?

One of the most fundamental measures of any economy is how it compares to other economies – especially over the long-term. Leaders armed with local, long run, comparative economic data are able to identify strengths, challenges, and future potential that may otherwise go undetected.

Beacon Economics’ Regional Economic Profiles provide an essential understanding of how an economy is performing and has performed over the long run compared to similar and surrounding economies.


Support for Municipal Bond Issuances - Analyses that allow you to deliver realistic growth data and long-term economic outlooks to bond investors and rating agencies.

Trends and Opportunities - A more penetrating depiction of your local or regional economy that illustrates trends and opportunities through comparisons to similar economies.

Long Term Insight - A critically important ‘long’ view of your local economy. One report delivers 10 to 20 years worth of structural analysis for an economy, allowing for comparisons over recessions and other economic high and low periods.

Eye Opening Context - Detailed comparisons of employment, business activity, residential and commercial real estate, and demographics.

Customized Analysis - Customizable comparison groups that can include combinations of city-to-city, city-to-county, city-to-state, and county-to-state analytic scenarios.

Professional Presentation - Clear, concisely written, professionally designed, graphic-heavy reports.
