EBRC Research Specialist Heather Peterson Accepts AUBER Award for Excellence in Electronic Publications for Arizona’s Economy from Eric Thompson and James Kleckley, Current and Past AUBER Presidents

The Association for University Business and Economic Research (AUBER), the premier organization in the United States promoting applied research in the areas of business economics and public policy, honored Arizona’s Economy with its 2014 Award for Excellence in Electronic Publications. The Economic and Business Research Center, in The University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management, has published Arizona’s Economy for 36 years. The publication went online in 2007. The EBRC has a long history of making applied analysis of economic trends in Arizona available to citizens, business leaders, and public sector decision makers, and began publishing the parent publication to Arizona’s Economy, The Arizona Review in 1952.

Each quarter, Arizona’s Economy provides an update of the economic forecast for Arizona and its metro areas.  The magazine also offers articles on a wide variety of topics relevant to assessing economic and business trends in Arizona ranging from fiscal issues and tax policy, to the housing market, to the educational attainment of Arizona’s workforce, to the Arizona-Mexico relationship, to the changing face of agriculture in Arizona, and the list goes on… 

In addition to articles and forecast analysis, Arizona’s Economy offers a detailed and comprehensive set of economic indicators which update weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually, depending on the source.  These indicators include sales, labor force and employment, housing prices, income and wages, and consumer confidence.  Each quarter readers can also review a selected set of forecast numbers for Arizona (statewide) and the Phoenix-Mesa-Glendale metro area and the Tucson metro.

This is the third national award for Arizona’s Economy. AUBER honored Arizona’s Economy with its Award for Excellence first in 1993 and again in 2005.
