City and regional economic outlook
National-level economic analysis provides only a partial guide to the dynamics unfolding in the world’s urban centres. Our unique city and regional services provide decision-makers with the necessary data and in-depth insights to navigate the new economic geography.
Our city and regional forecasts are produced in conjunction with our Global Economic Model. This ensures that developments in the global economy, such as the strength of world trade and investment cycles, and domestic factors such as government policy, are reflected in the outlook for individual cities and regions.
Understand the risks and opportunities for individual cities
Use our services to identify strengths, weaknesses and growth prospects for urban locations, understand the industrial structure of the economy, and gain insights on key indicators such as GDP, employment, population, incomes and consumer spending.
