Economics, Markets, and the Workforce

​Few areas of American life have changed as much or as fast as the economy. Globalization, the explosive growth of digital technology, the lingering effects of the Great Recession, and a host of other factors have altered the economy in profound ways. They have changed the way entrepreneurs create new businesses, the ways employers and workers find and relate to one another, the ways the education system prepares people for productive careers, and the ways families and businesses spend and save money. And, those changes are continuing at an accelerating rate. NORC’s expertise at gathering the data and developing measures to accurately assess Americans’ professional and financial health is unmatched, and the company continues to refine the investigative tools that inform economic research and policy at every level.
