Economic Indicator Reports
The dissemination of the CWERB research takes place through Economic Indicator Reports. The Economic Indicator Reports are presented in the population centers of Central Wisconsin, i.e., Marshfield, Stevens Point, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids. The reports are presented to the business, political, and educational leaders of those counties. Substantial newspaper, radio, and television coverage of the publications and presentations have been instrumental in focusing attention on UWSP and the School of Business and Economics. For example the Chief Economist Randy Cray has been interviewed on matters pertaining to the economy. The reports contain data on a wide range of economic data. For example the reports contain data on national statistics such as GDP, inflation, industrial production and interest rates. At the state and local level the reports contain data on employment, unemployment, business sentiment, retail sentiment, family financial distress, construction and housing data.
