North Carolina Retail Impact

This project investigates the statewide retail trade impact on North Carolina’s economy by highlighting the importance of the retail industry to the state’s economy. Findings will help substantiate the voice of the retail industry in North Carolina. Moreover, this report will use standard input-output modeling to estimate the total economic impacts of retail trade in NC and methods to forecast holiday and seasonal trends for the retail trade industry to better project its future impact and needs.
