Welcome to Econ Impact Analysis

It is sometimes important to understand how the businesses in a local economy are connected to one another in order to understand how the changes in a particular industry will affect other businesses. It is also helpful to understand how a new business or industry entering a community will influence the broader area in terms of employment, production, and/or income.

Economic Impact Analysis is a methodology used to trace the effects of an economic event throughout the economy. IMPLAN data and software, a nationally recognized and respected package, is utilized to facilitate this type of analysis. Economic Impact Analyses may be performed at an individual county level or at multi-county levels.
