Eller College Economic and Business Research Center publication garners national award

Arizona's Economy sets the standard for applied economic and business research

TUCSON, Ariz. – DECEMBER 15, 2005 – The Economic and Business Research Center (EBR) at The University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management has added another accolade to its string of laurels dating back to 1993. The Association for University Economic and Business Research (AUBER) recently honored EBR with its 2005 Award of Excellence in Publications for its quarterly newsletter Arizona’s Economy.

In line with The University of Arizona’s mission to educate and serve, a goal of EBR is to keep the Arizona business community up-to-date on current economic and demographic trends in the metro areas. Maile Nadelhoffer, senior EBR researcher, commented that the award affirms EBR’s position in the “forefront of setting a standard for applied economic and business research, connecting the College with the state and local business community.” The quarterly publication successfully implements the practical application of research conducted by EBR.

The selection of Arizona’s Economy was based on several criteria including layout and design, writing and composition, content, and the overall publication. Judges commented on the “excellent presentation of research statistics” and the valuable addition of the BLCI (Business Leaders Confidence Index®) insert from Compass Bank.

AUBER membership includes more than 100 applied university-based research centers from across the nation. Arizona’s Economy was previously recognized by AUBER with the 1993 Award of Excellence. In 2003, EBR earned the AUBER Award in the Statistical Abstracts and Other Data Publications category for its 700+ page Arizona Statistical Abstract 2003. The organization has also recognized excellence in the Center’s website and its annual Economic Outlook publication.
