About Us

Our reputation is one of excellent, independent and objective analysis.

Core Values

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

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.

Our Track Record

Our overall forecast accuracy since 1985 is 94.7% at one year out. At ITR Economics, the duration a forecast is in place is just as important as the accuracy. We need to provide our clients with the stake in the ground with which they can plan and not a moving target.

Check out our last few years of scorecards and contact us today for more information. We are happy to talk through our strengths and abilities, as well as any limitations.
