As a long-established source of strategic market research, regional economic advice, macroeconomic forecasts, and current data, RCG Economics has established a reputation for being objective and independent and – in the words of one client – “telling it like it is.”
We are NOT advocates. We want all our clients to make judicious business and investment decisions based on sound market, economic, financial, and investment fundamentals.
Our clients include a diverse array of organizations and individuals needing reliable data, research, forecasts, and advice. We serve the real estate and gaming/hospitality industries as well as corporate decision makers, economic development entities, and local, state and federal governments and agencies.
RCG’s continued mission is to remain at the forefront of state-of-the-art market analysis and regional economic research and forecasting techniques. Our market research studies and macroeconomic forecasts and analyses inject private sector reality into our public sector consulting.
“Facts are stubborn things, and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”
– U.S. President John Adams
In keeping with firm objectives, RCG Economics offers several specialized market products. These include custom consumer research; custom quarterly surveys of the industrial, retail and office markets; and metro area profiles. We also co-publish an economic news site, The Stat Pack, with our publishing partner HighTower Las Vegas, offering data and dialogue on the Southern Nevada, Mountain West, and U.S. economy and business/investment scene.
Custom Consumer Research
Our services include questionnaire design, intercept and online surveys, focus group management, market research data analysis, and strategic business advice.
Metro Area Profiles
Our profiles provide clients with an integrated view of regional and urban economic and market trends and patterns. They are based on a comprehensive view of economic, fiscal and demographic forces, institutional and political conditions, existing and projected market patterns, as well as areas of significant investment – Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats – in a given metro area, state or region.
Quarterly Custom Quarterly Market Surveys
Our market surveys focus on the issues and trends in Las Vegas commercial real estate markets. RCG Economics’ industrial, office and retail supply-side market research is building-specific, including existing, under-construction, and planned projects. Our demand-side market research focuses on absorption estimates and forecasts tied to region-specific economic and demographic trends and patterns. Expertly synthesizing both supply and demand conditions provides the context in which proposed development projects can be meaningfully evaluated. This approach has proven invaluable to our clients in commercial property investment and sales in the form of comparative market analysis, development cost evaluations, and project feasibility studies.
