Update on EMSI’s Economic Indicators Section

EMSI’s Data Department has recently decided to remove the economic indicators section from Analyst. This is largely due to a lack of use, and so that EMSI can focus on datasets that ultimately are more useful and valuable to you. If you have any questions, please contact Rob Sentz.

As of July 1 the data will officially be removed from Analyst (particularly the Economic Impact section). If you are still interested in receiving the indicator data, here are the links you can use to find them:
