Three Great Sources for Arizona Economic Info!

aefall15Ever wonder about the economy? Have an interest in economic data? Here are three publications available in the Arizona State Government Publications Collection on the Arizona Memory Project.

Arizona’s Workforce

Arizona’s Workforce is a monthly publication of Arizona employment statistics. Not only does it keep you up-to-date with the state’s employment rate, it has data by economic sector and metropolitan statistical area (so you can see figures for the Flagstaff area, for example).

Arizona’s Economy is a quarterly publication published by the University of Arizona’s Economic and Business Research Center. In addition to economic data, each edition of the publication includes a few in-depth articles covering topics of interest. The current issue covers Arizona’s 30 year economic outlook, the aging of the population, and renting versus owning in Pima County’s housing market.
