Beyond Just The Data

Analysis, Insights and Impact

Many if not most organizations consume and publish data regularly. There is an abundance of data providers out there, from private companies to public agencies.

But what do you do when you need more than raw data and statistics alone? For example, evaluating the impact of a policy, or forecasting potential future scenarios in a local economy?

We put together a few great examples of recent analysis eImpact has completed on behalf of its clients. Much like an extension of our clients' team, eImpact is in many respects an on-demand analyst for pressing issues.

A few examples of analysis performed by eImpact

  1. Policy Impact
    When a large tax was proposed on the hospital system in Oregon, a leading advocacy group came to eImpact to quickly analyze and report the potential economic and societal impact. This analysis helped the organization rise above the noise of the debate with real numbers, aiding in their discussions with lawmakers and the media.

  2. Understanding Housing Affordability
    How can you create effective policy without understanding the issue based on real data? This was the question our client asked themselves before turning to us for help running the numbers. By providing stakeholders with a picture of the current affordability landscape, they were able to help move the issue forward towards a policy solution.

    This summary chart shows the number of housing units residents could afford based on their earning bracket.

  3. Forecasting Potential Futures
    Shy of a crystal ball, how can we understand what potential future scenarios mean for job creation and wages? At eImpact, we regularly prepare forecast analysis for our clients looking at scenarios including high growth, interest rate shock and recession.
