The Economic and Business Research Center provides Arizona’s citizens, educators, business leaders, and decision-makers with applied economic research, forecasts, and analysis of trends that impact business success and quality of life in Arizona.

The EBRC provides economic forecasts and socioeconomic data and analysis for businesses and individuals—including government agencies, chambers of commerce, public and private researchers, news media and students—throughout the state of Arizona. Members of the EBRC share their expertise at the Annual Economic Outlook Luncheon each December, the Annual Breakfast with Economists in June, and in media interviews, as well as in our quarterly online magazine Arizona’s Economy. Keep abreast of issues affecting doing business in the borderlands by visiting EBRCs Arizona-Mexico Economic Indicators website. The Making Action Possible for Southern Arizona website allows you to gauge progress for Southern Arizona across a wide variety of economic and social indicators.

Research lies at the heart of the EBRC’s mission. EBRC contracts to do research on a wide array of topics from revenue forecasting, public finance, and taxation to industry studies. In addition, the EBRC’s Forecasting Project provides in-depth economic forecasts for business and government on a subscription basis via the Forecasting Project.
