Research and Data

You know your business; we know the Northern Lower Michigan economy. Combine the two, and you have information to make better, more informed decisions about the future of your company.

The NLEA team is dedicated to researching and compiling valuable data and information to deliver insights to both our team and the Northern Lower Michigan business community.

Our team leverages powerful data tools and the insights we gather from businesses first-hand to create many of our resources. Our Research & Data Library houses interactive data dashboards that provide information at the regional and county level and articles that dive into a specific economic trend.
