It is managed and staffed by the Institute’s Economic & Public Policy Research group. The project mobilizes economic experts within the University of Massachusetts system and from other public and private research institutions around the state to produce and distribute relevant assessments of the Massachusetts economy through reports, commentary, and analysis. These assessments take the form of the MassBenchmarks journal and a series of free-standing research bulletins and leading indices to assess the Massachusetts economy.
