We can all agree that there are no limits to how diverse businesses can be. However, whether the business is solar panels, retail stores, theme parks, or movies, Impact DataSource has analyzed it all. Of course, it would be an overstatement to say we are experts in all industries, but we are experts in economic and fiscal impact analysis, and like most economists, we are adept at finding the common underlying factors for all business that then allows us to leverage our expertise in each unique industry.

Let’s be clear, it’s certainly not all “off-the-shelf” simple. We customize each study to the particular community and project, consider the local demographics, municipalities’ budgets and taxing structures, connectivity to other locations, amount of resources that will be imported from outside the community, and the project-specific inputs like capital investment, employee profile, and industry specific multipliers, naming only a few. Plus every client has a unique purpose for their study that we consider. For example, the client may want to know how the project fits in with the wider economic development efforts of a community, they may want to assess the revenues the project will generate net of a tax incentive, or they may be applying for a special economic development grant that requires a specific type of analysis. We take it all into account.

Impact DataSource has performed thousands of economic and fiscal impact analyses that have run the gamut from a race track in Texas to a hospital in Connecticut, and an oil terminal in Alaska. We’ve been everywhere man!
