Economic Outlook

BRAC understands the value of making decisions with the highest level of information possible. Each year, we produce an analysis of the Capital Region's economic outlook for the next one to three years. This information is invaluable as organizations are preparing their short-term budgets and long-term strategies.

 

 

 

Economic Impact

BRAC launched The Campaign for a Greater Baton Rouge, a five-year strategic plan, following an influx of residents and resources to the Baton Rouge area during Hurricane Katrina. The campaign served to stimulate and increase economic growth by recruiting new businesses to the region. As a result, we assisted sixty-five companies in relocating or expanding to the Capital Region, creating 6,757 jobs and generating $2.6 billion in new capital investment. This analysis details the economic and revenue impacts of those businesses from 2006 through 2010.
