Center for Regional Analysis: Economic Monitor

The Coastal Empire Economic Indicators are designed to provide continuously updating quarterly snapshots of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area economy. The coincident index measures the current economic heartbeat of the region. The leading index provides a short-term forecast of the region's economic activity in six to nine months.

Together, these economic indicators offer readers an informational tool that can be used to adjust to changes in regional demand conditions. The informational signals provided by the indicators may be used to control inventory, optimize staffing, adjust marketing or pricing strategies, forecast revenue, or capitalize on other opportunities in the regional economy.
