In 1990, the Charleston Metro Chamber formed the Center for Business Research (CBR); a hidden jewel of knowledge that many are unaware exists. The CBR compiles, analyzes and distributes economic and demographic information on the Charleston region – powerful data that can inform your major business decisions. The CBR is responsible for tracking the indicators for the annual Economic Forecast, but their work is much vaster and nationally recognized. For instance, every two years, the CBR conducts a wage and benefits survey which studies benefit and compensation practices among employers in the Charleston region. The CBR conducts primary and secondary research and has most recently produced studies on the economic impact of the Charleston International Airport and MUSC. The data compiled by the CBR is distributed by the Chamber, but can also be found on the Charleston Regional Competitiveness Center. The Competitiveness Center is an online portal designed to provide up-to-date economic and workforce information on the Charleston region and is sponsored by the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, the Charleston Metro Chamber, Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments and the Trident Workforce Investment Board.
