Regional impact app

Our regional economic impact app generates a pro forma benefits workbook for an economic expansion case. The workbook includes values for the criteria listed in the smart growth app as well as all of the standard economic impact values, such as gross local product, earnings, and employment multipliers. We also include information on where connections between supply and demand weaken for the expansion case, and a listing of key demand-supply connections that underlie the multipliers.
