The Mystery of the Economy: Get Clues from an Exclusive Local Forecast

The Pierce County Economic Index (PCEI): what is it and why is it important?

  • Designed to measure the economic well-being of Pierce County, the PCEI report is constructed from more than 25 local, regional and national data sets.
  • The data sets for the report were chosen for their tested relevance, timely availability and consistency of reporting.
  • The report is unique to Pierce County and an exceptional business tool rarely duplicated in other communities.
There have been 20+ years of annual PCEI reports unveiled at the Chamber’s Horizons economic forecast event, which serves as the initial presentation of the PCEI. Authors of the PCEI, Drs. Bruce Mann and Douglas Goodman, professors of economics at the University of Puget Sound, present the forecast in a general conference session.

Attendees of this year’s event (scheduled for the morning of Thursday, December 16, 7:30 a.m.), will be treated to an audience-friendly, part humorous, part somber, comprehensive and always significant presentation by the professors (adept from 23 years of informative reporting).

With the help of their “magnifying glass” scrutinizing our area’s economy, get clues that will assist in clearing the economic air of mystery surrounding the upcoming year by joining us at the 2011 Horizons Economic Forecast event next Thursday at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center.
