We have also conducted or consulted on numerous footprint studies, economic impact analyses, immigration reports, annual tax reviews, public policy proposals, and much more as we aim to identify the most important factors within the nation’s economy.

Responsibilities include:
• Collaborating with senior staff and clients in analyzing policy proposals through the use of REMI’s state-of-the-art econometric models
• Set and lead meetings with decision makers
• Developing reports that drive the conversation about policy questions and alternative proposals
• Answering clients’ questions about modeling approaches and the structure of their research
• Developing expert knowledge in complex economic modeling
