RCG Economics is at the forefront

Of state-of-the-art techniques in Las Vegas regional economics and related research. Over the past 20 years, our professionals have completed a variety of economic research/public planning projects across most of the western United States. Currently, we focus on three areas:

Regional Economic Research

Is based upon urban and regional modeling and economic/demographic projections. RCG Economics (www.rcgecon.com) is a leader in regional/urban modeling. For example, RCG Economics provides projections of population, household income and employment for over 1,400 sub-regional areas within the Las Vegas metropolitan region for the Clark County Regional Transportation Commission.

Economic Development

Includes economic-base analyses, industry studies, economic development planning, and information services for economic development implementation. We maintain a census of all major employers and monitor national/international trends in those industries for a variety of metropolitan areas.

RCG Economics maintains extensive real estate and economic databases which, when combined with our real estate supply-side information, gives us the information-based edge for economic development planning. RCG Economics’ professionals have completed a variety of economic-base analyses and economic development plans at the state, county and municipal levels. Our economic development implementation services include the application of demographic, economic and real estate supply information to a variety of economic development problems, including industry targeting, advertising and marketing strategies.

Urban Development Services

Focus on the public side of urban growth and community development issues, including land use planning, infrastructure/capital facilities planning, public services planning, land values and fiscal impact assessment. RCG Economics has completed a number of public sector planning projects. Our clients include the full range of public bodies in Las Vegas and the Southwest including regional commissions, state agencies, counties, cities and other local jurisdictions.
