Our Track Record


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.
