In today’s highly-competitive business climate, it is vital that economists and analysts possess a firm grasp of the economic data that factor into business decisions, drive economic modeling, and influence policy debates. Understanding how the data are constructed is a prerequisite for accurate interpretation and analysis.

Now in its 15th year, the Economic Measurement Seminar (EMS) presented by The NABE Foundation is a convenient, cost-effective program designed to strengthen your knowledge of economic statistics and analytical techniques, enhancing your ability to add value in your workplace.


The EMS pairs expert data producers with prominent data users to provide you with an insightful view of how data are compiled and how they are used by leading analysts. EMS attendees earn the 
Certificate in Economic Measurement and enjoy numerous opportunities to network with presenters and colleagues.

EMS attendees will gain:

  • a comprehensive knowledge of all major measures of U.S. economic performance including employment, prices, GDP, housing/ home prices, and corporate profits
  • insight into how economic statistics are collected and compiled by Federal agencies and private sector data providers
  • an understanding of how to use available data to make informed business decisions
  • the knowledge needed to prepare themselves for the economic measurement questions on NABE’s CBE Exam
  • an expanded network! The EMS provides a number of opportunities to network with presenters and colleagues 

Early career professionals and first-time attendees typically focus on Track A sessions. Seasoned professionals and repeat attendees look to Track B sessions for a deeper dive on specialized topics. Or….mix and match sessions from both tracks to customize your learning experience!
