- Economic Impact Analysis – Estimates the regional economic impact of the introduction, expansion, or contraction/elimination of a business, industry or any large organization. Regional job creation/reduction and increased/decreased spending on goods and services are estimated.
- Fiscal Impact Analysis – Estimates the financial impact on local and state governments of proposed or existing real estate developments or of a reduction/downsizing of an industry or large organization. Additions or reductions in revenue and costs generated by the construction of a development or elimination due to a downsizing are estimated and compared, resulting in a finding of whether the event produces a financial surplus or deficit. This analysis may also include the feasibility and impacts of alternative financing solutions such as STAR (Sales Tax Anticipation Revenue) bonds, TIF (Tax Increments Financing) districts, SAD (Special Assessment Districts) and more.
- Gaming Feasibility Analysis – Estimates the market for a casino in a given location, including annual gaming revenue, win/game/day, construction and operating costs, and number of employees, among other financial indicators. Economic and fiscal impact analyses are also integral to the gaming feasibility analysis for governments.
