Economic data of Arizona
Reaching back with NAU to help you move forward
Since 1989, the Alliance Bank Economic Policy Institute has provided market research and economic data for the Arizona Office of Tourism. While this partnership continues, we provide market research for many other public and private sector clients needing current economic data.
Available to the public as well as NAU students, the Research Library houses data regarding numerous facets of the tourism industry in the Grand Canyon State. Staffed daily Monday through Friday, the library provides statistical information on Arizona visitors and the greater tourism/hospitality industry in the state. Current published materials available at the library also include academic journals and national and international publications from key industry sources including the Travel Industry Association of America and World Tourism Organization.
