The Clemson University Regional Economic Analysis Laboratory performs public policy, economic and fiscal analysis for public, private, and nonprofit sector clients. CU-REAL uses the Regional Economic Models, Inc. (REMI) PI+ model as our primary tool for economic impact analysis. This model allows us to perform analysis at the county, multi-county, state, or multi-state level. It also allows us to perform multi-year analyses to estimate both historic and projected future impacts. REMI output can be used with our own Fiscal Impact Analysis Tool to project impacts to state and local government revenue and expenditure streams. The Fiscal Impact Analysis Tool is built on U.S. Census of Governments data and is fully customizable.
