Economic & Housing Analysis

Your partner in better understanding community conditions and solving client-specific problems.

Matrix has a deep history helping states, regions, and communities better understand economic and housing situations through rigorous analysis and reporting. Our PhD-level team of economists, analysts, engineers, and planners provide clients with a multidisciplinary, data-driven approach to economic and financial analyses. We assist our federal, state, local, and private-sector clients in answering complex economic problems to help guide their decision-making processes. We use the most reliable data and advanced methodologies to ensure accurate findings. Every analysis is transparent and replicable, and we provide each client with detailed reports that contain our methodologies, data sources, findings, and recommendations. Finally, we pride ourselves in utilizing web-based applications that incorporate GIS technologies to explore spatial relationships and patterns and to link trends to land use distributions and other variables. The web-based applications make results visually meaningful and easily accessible to all stakeholders and provide interactive datasets that can be updated to maintain their relevance.

We enable informed decision-making, holistic planning, and strategic economic development that position clients for stable growth and support vibrant communities well into the future.
