EPIC Report

EPIC: Economic Planning Indicators Committee

Northern Nevada Economic Planning Indicators Committee (“EPIC”) Report 2.0!  The update of the original EPIC report was released at the EDAWN State of the Economy event.  The forecast for the next 5 years is for continued job growth of 51,585 with population growth of 54,470 for a five county region. Here is the final report with county by county data.

The purpose of the study is to forecast how many jobs and residents will potentially be located in the Study Areas by 2020, based on current and anticipated growth trends. The Study Area was segmented in 18 “EPIC Zones.”  The where and how growth will occur is largely based on expected changes in land use patterns and economic activity over time.  The EPIC has used the state-of-the-art, well-accepted and widely-used forecasting model developed by Regional Economics Models, Inc. (“REMI”).
