Take a summer road trip across the US with ITR Economics! No, we won’t be stopping at any roadside attractions, but we will be diving into economic data on a state-by-state basis to identify regional trends and opportunities.

While most ITR analysis is conducted on a national basis, that type of high-level assessment can obscure critical regional variation. For small or regional companies without a national footprint, these differences are key drivers of business decisions. For some, geographic trends may even drive results more strongly than overall industry trajectories. For others, this more granular geographic analysis can inform expansion plans.

In this webinar, we will examine state- and region-level economic activity, beginning with Gross State Product (GSP) and continuing to an exploration of key industrial and manufacturing sectors. We will also consider both residential and nonresidential construction trends, as well as labor availability and wage trends.

Underlying the economic data are a plethora of critical drivers, including state population growth rates and demographic trends. By considering these factors, attendees will not only understand current economic data but will have a basis for future growth expectations.
The US is a big place, and economic trends are not necessarily uniform across it. Please join us to dive into these business and consumer trends!
