Strategic decision-making grounded in data and analysis.
Our analysts are leaders in the research and analysis of local, regional, and statewide economies. We use the most advanced and comprehensive economic development data and tools available to understand economic trends and identify emerging opportunities to expand your community. Sites and incentives that once drove economic development are now secondary to a community's quality of place, workforce assets, and entrepreneurial ecosystem. Camoin Associates recognizes this transformation and continues to develop new analytic techniques and approaches that help you stay at the forefront. Each project is custom-designed to answer your specific questions, and we often adapt our approach as information is uncovered and new questions arise.
Economic Base Analysis
