Welcome to The Puget Sound Economic Forecaster website, which features economic
forecasts, analysis, data, and commentary for the greater Seattle area.
Established in 1993, The Puget Sound Economic Forecaster is a quarterly
newsletter published by the Center for Economic and Business Research at
Western Washington University which acquired the publication in 2017 from its
founders, Conway Pedersen Economics, Inc.
The newsletter and website are designed for business executives, marketing directors,
investors, government managers, and researchers who need a professional and objective
view on the economic prospects for the Puget Sound region (King County, Kitsap County,
Pierce County, and Snohomish County).
Our goal is to provide accurate and well-reasoned forecasts for the region as well as
clear and insightful observations on important developments in the economy.
