Measuring Economic Development Performance

In helping regions compete, CREC is dedicated to helping policymakers better measure their economic performance.

CREC is collaborating with partners to sponsor research on how states are measuring the performance of the portfolio of economic development programs.

In 2016, we published the first of an occasional series.  We welcome others to contribute and to help us in moving this effort forward on behalf of the economic development practice.
