MassBenchmarks is the journal of the Massachusetts economy, published by the UMass Donahue Institute in cooperation with the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and managed by the Institute’s Economic and Public Policy Research group. The journal often includes periodic economic analyses of major geographic regions within the Commonwealth, key industries that make up the economic base of the state, and balanced economic perspectives on key policy and investment issues facing Massachusetts. Editorials and articles provide commentary on and interpretation of economic data aimed at business and labor leaders, public policy makers, and the general public.
In addition to publishing biannual journals, the MassBenchmarks board also releases current and leading indices of the Massachusetts economy, excerpts examining the Massachusetts economic outlook, and updates and interpretations of current economic trends.
The MassBenchmarks website maintains current and past journals, data releases, and additional studies, available at http://www.massbenchmarks.org/.
