Topics and Reports

The Center for Economic and Business Research occasionally posts results of its research and analysis on this page.  Much of the Center's work is paid research and analysis.  This work is conducted using best practices overlaid with academic rigor and standards with the results of such analysis held as independent from the funding source.  Our work is conducted by a team of select students, graduate students, faculty and staff and reviewed by qualified faculty and staff.

We welcome questions and comments related to our work and encourage you to email us at cebr[at]wwu.edu.
