Center for Business & Economic Research

Started in 2006, the mission of the ULM Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) is to provide unbiased, independent, reliable, and high value information and analysis of, and for, the 12 parishes of northeast Louisiana.

To that end, you will find a plethora of quantitative economic data about Monroe and northeast Louisiana.

The Economic Fact Book, updated and published annually, has detailed information about Monroe and northeast Louisiana's population and demographics; labor force statistics; business climate data; and quality of life information.

To find out how CBER can help you, please feel free to contact me.
