ITR Economics

First in Forecasts Worldwide

ITR Economics™ provides the best economic intelligence to reduce risk and drive practical and profitable business decisions.

Since 1948, we have provided business leaders with economic information, insight, analysis, and strategy. ITR Economics is the oldest privately held, continuously operating economic research and consulting firm in the US.

With a knowledge base that spans six decades, we have an uncommon understanding of long-term economic trends as well as best practices ahead of changing market conditions. Our reputation is built on accurate, independent, and objective analysis.

We will serve our clients with integrity. We recognize our clients have individual needs that require us to tailor our solutions to meet those needs. We value our clients and will endeavor to provide our best efforts.

Recognizing that employees have families and needs beyond the business, ITR Economics will provide a healthy work environment by creating a financially rewarding and enjoyable work environment, promoting clear and transparent communication, and providing opportunities for professional development and growth. ITR Economics rewards a solid work ethic, customer-service focus, and employees who promote the well-being of the entire organization.

Our overall forecast accuracy since 1985 is 94.7% at one year out. At ITR Economics, the length of time a forecast is in place is just as important as its accuracy. While some firms give their clients a moving target, we provide ours with a stake in the ground, empowering them to plan effectively.
