On the Pulse of our Local Economy

Sponsored by the School of Business and Economics, The Indiana University East Business and Economics Research Center is designed to: 1) assist in collecting and creating economic data that will be useful in supporting the economic vitality of the Eastern Indiana and Western Ohio regions; 2) conduct economic research and studies to capture the pulse of the local and regional economy. The center also looks forward any potential collaborative projects with community groups/organizations to enhance the knowledge of the local business environment.

You can find some research reports done by the center recently under the “Resources” on the right side of the screen.

If you have any comments or requests or ideas about how we might be of service, please feel free to contact me at litzhong@iue.edu.
