The George Mason Schar School of Policy and Government’s Center for Regional Analysis is the clearinghouse for economic data and forecasts specific to the Washington, D.C. region. Its fiscal analyses, economic indicators, demographic studies, information services, and data products are relied on by business and government executives as they seek to stimulate investment and development and spur enterprise in Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and suburban Maryland.
The center was formed in 1993 to spearhead research into the intersection of policy and economic development in technologically intensive markets. It quickly established itself as the definitive word on the latest trends, from commuting patterns and the health of the regional housing market to the area’s employment outlook and immigration patterns.
The center can tailor its analyses to meet the needs of specific clients and has worked with nearly 30 private and public entities, including local home builders, the World Bank, the Smithsonian Institution, and the International Monetary Fund. It counts the county and city governments of all the surrounding Northern Virginia communities as clients.
