Please join us to attend and cover one of Orange County’s major annual business events:  Chapman University’s mid-year Economic Forecast Update, issued by the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research.  This presentation updates and revises the university’s Economic Forecast presented last December.  The Update will review the December 2012 Forecast and project trends through the year 2014.   Chapman University’s Economic Forecasts are based on a comprehensive database and an econometric model developed by Chapman faculty and students.  Researchers gather historical and current economic data on a quarterly basis.  More than 200 equations are factored into the economic model and integrated using theoretical principles of economics and econometrics.  Presented to the Orange County business community for more than 30 years, the Chapman University Economic Forecasts achieve a high degree of accuracy and are respected by business people, community leaders and business media.
