National Policy


Federal policy directly and indirectly impacts policy changes at the local, state and regional levels. A policy instituted nationally can have different implications for each state as a result of their respective gross state product, input, output, and linkages to in-state and out-of-state programs and plans.

Legislative leaders and policymakers determine the overall scope of a national policy and must evaluate the total impacts of policies and programs before implementation. Substantial analysis creates a higher understanding of the expected effectiveness of a drafted bill or specific type of bill.

REMI models allow analysts to decipher the potential outcomes of national policies and programs. REMI PI+, TranSight, Tax-PI, and the rest of the catalogue of economic models provide a variety of data and forecasts researched and compiled across the United States.

National assessment also requires more information in order to run models and forecast the effects and the REMI models are prepared for multi-region and multi-state analysis. Arranging as much data as possible initially will manifest the highest accuracy for the final economic total and the residual effects of that outcome.

REMI studies range from beverage taxes to fixing entitlements, from paid sick leave to automaker bankruptcies.
