POLICOM Corporation is an independent economics research firm which specializes in analyzing the dynamics of local and state economies.
From its research, it determines if an area is growing or declining, what is causing this to happen, and offers solutions and ideas to improve the local economy.
POLICOM has served as an economic development consultant for communities throughout the United States for more than twenty years.
Founded in 1995, POLICOM has examined the condition of more than 800 local economies, created more than 200 community economic studies, and its President, William H. Fruth, has given economic development presentations in 40 states.
Annually POLICOM ranks all the Metropolitan and Micropolitan Statistical Areas for "economic strength" which is the long-term tendency for an area to consistently grow in size and quality.
