Chapman Virtual Economic Forecast 2020

 Chapman University’s 2020 Economic Forecasts was presented virtually on Thursday, December 17. A recording of the full presentation can be viewed below.

Economic Forecast

Ranked #1 among forecast agencies for more than a decade, Chapman’s Economic Forecast has provided unrivaled insights into the economies of Orange County, California and the U.S. Each year in June, the update revisits the data shared at the conference for accuracy regarding the past two quarters, generally demonstrating why our forecasts receive national attention. At the same time, our presenters are ready to share new information about future quarters. Such relevant information is at the ready thanks to the continued efforts of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research.

This year, our economists will introduce a new metric, the Innovation Indicator, a scorecard that ranks regional economic growth based on success in creating jobs and building industry in the innovation sector.
