The goal for research at CROWE is to provide a new research perspective in the state, using structural economic models for policy analysis and evaluation.

Research Overview

To increase economic policy discussion and the accessibility of economic policy research, the Center will issue regular reports and forecasts on major economic trends in the state, and produce in-depth, timely studies on important issues facing the state economy.

Particular areas of focus include:

  • Empirical Analysis and Forecasting: Documenting world, national, and regional economic changes and their impact on Wisconsin.
  • Economic Development: Analysis of policies and initiatives to spur economic growth and development at the state level.
  • Public Finance: Analysis of the allocation of resources by the public sector at the local, state, and national levels.

The first CROWE Policy Report, “The Impact of the Manufacturing and Agriculture Credit in Wisconsin,” was issued in April 2017.
