What is economic impact?

We demonstrate the social, environmental and economic impact of your activities and help you communicate these to key stakeholders. Our work ranges from in-depth modelling and quantification of the effects of economic policy changes for governments to detailed quantification of the footprint of companies on particular communities. With decades of experience, commitment to methodological rigour, and independence, our findings are trusted by stakeholders across government, business, and media.

Demonstrate your economic impact

We demonstrate how your activities contribute to GDP, employment, and tax revenues, and affect a range of social and environmental outcomes. We work collaboratively with our clients to investigate how their policies, operations, investments, and innovations create impact.

Understanding impact outside of your organisation

Our work extends well beyond the lens of individual organisations. We quantify all of the different channels that generate economic, social and environmental impacts, including supply chains, employment multipliers and technological spillovers.

Explore impact locally, nationally, and globally

Our world-leading models allow us to quantify your impact in a host of different geographies more comprehensively than conventional methodologies. And we have a range of tools to collect unique data that shine a spotlight on the breadth of these impacts.

“We were drawn to working with Oxford Economics for its solid reputation and the strength of its research, and we’ve been particularly impressed with your ability to present this to governments and the media – it’s the reason we’d look for future opportunities to work together.”
