Goodman named Massachusetts Forecast Manager for the New England Economic Project
Michael Goodman, UMass Donahue Institute's Director of Economic and Public Policy Research, was recently appointed Massachusetts Forecast Manager by the New England Economic Project (NEEP).
NEEP regularly publishes macroeconomic forecasts of the New England region and its six individual states. In addition to providing historical data, these projections forecast and analyze quarterly data over a five-year horizon and include information on employment, income, inflation, unemployment, labor force, net interstate migration, as well as detailed population estimates. Bank loans, deposits, credit performance measures, real estate construction activity, and home price information are also included.
Subject to a stringent review by NEEP's Quality Review Committee, NEEP's economic forecasts are based on econometric models prepared by Economy.com. Dr. Goodman, who is also a member of the NEEP Board of Directors, will now be responsible for preparing the NEEP forecast for the state of Massachusetts.
