Headwaters Economics is working with groups participating in the Tongass Futures Roundtable to better understand Southeast Alaska’s economy.
On this page you will find a report by Headwaters Economics on the economy of Southeast Alaska, with socioeconomic details about boroughs and census areas as well as specific industries, and a slide show on economic challenges and opportunities in the region, which was jointly developed by Headwaters Economics and the McDowell Group.
We hope that these documents will be a first step in the development of a shared information resource on Southeast Alaska’s economy, and that through partnerships it will grow and become an opportunity to develop solutions that work for the region and its residents.
