Project Description

The Dashboard of Economic Indicators offers a detailed economic analysis of more than 330 metropolitan areas within the United States. The Fund uses the Dashboard to identify common characteristics of high-growth regions and to assess how our region's economy is performing in comparison to other markets. The next report (to be published in spring 2013) will examine which indicators were most closely associated growth in a post-recession economy.
