CEBR faculty are available to make public presentations on various topics related to regional and national economic issues. Some examples of previous presentation topics have included the national and local economic outlook, the returns to education, local tax revenue estimates, poverty and income inequality, and the minimum wage. We welcome invitations from chambers of commerce, non-profit organizations, state and local government offices, and other groups.

Economic Analysis of the Southeast Missouri Region

CEBR has access to various data sources for local and regional economic conditions. We welcome inquiries for data dissemination and data analysis. In the past, we have received and accommodated data inquiries from local governments, non-profit organizations, trade associations, and other groups.

Economic Impact Studies

CEBR also performs economic impact analyses on a contract basis. Many of these relate to the economic impact of activities on local communities. Some examples of past studies include the economic impact of the child care industry in the State of Missouri, the economic impact of sanctioned barbecue contests, and the economic impact of the Missouri Delta Medical Center.
