Exploring Our Evolving Economy
Introducing IMPLAN COVID 2020-Q2 Data

To get current and future IMPLAN users acquainted with the value of the data set, caveats while using it, and approaches to studying it, we hosted a free 45-minute webinar titled, Exploring Our Evolving Economy – Introducing IMPLAN COVID 2020-Q2 Data. The last 15 minutes of the presentation features Q&A with our economists.

In this webinar, you will discover the IMPLAN COVID 2020-Q2 Data, review its methodology, and identify interesting findings and trends in the data set.

Evolving Economy – COVID 2020-Q2 Data
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic represent a structural shift to the U.S. economy. With major changes to employment levels and average wage rates plus stimulus checks and PPP loans, it is crucial that the most appropriate data is used for modeling during this time. With that in mind, IMPLAN is proud to announce the release of ground-breaking data and economic impact models for the COVID-19 era.

Accordingly, IMPLAN has used the best publicly available data from the second quarter of 2020 to produce an IMPLAN data set (U.S., state, county, congressional district, and zip code models) meant to represent the pandemic-altered 2020 U.S. economy. Our Data Team annualized the data set based on the second quarter of 2020, so the entirety of the data examines how the whole year would look based on the start of the pandemic. For some Industries, there are very high losses evident from anecdotal evidence as well as in the COVID 2020-Q2 Data.

The data set has the same data points and capabilities as regular annual IMPLAN data. Because of this, you can compare 2018 levels to the Evolving Economy – COVID 2020-Q2 Data to see differences in your Region. However, as with any data set, there are nuances and considerations to keep in mind when using the data and comparing it to other data years. For more information on what you’ll find in the Evolving Economy data set, read our blog post here.
