About BBER

The University of New Mexico’s Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) was established in 1945 to provide credible and objective data and research to inform economic development and public policy in New Mexico. 

 BBER services include economic forecasting, economic and fiscal impact analysis, and technical expertise in support of strategic planning, feasibility assessment, program evaluation, and database development.  BBER conducts applied research on community and regional development, resource management, land use and housing policy, cultural policy, and public health. As New Mexico’s lead agency in the Census Bureau’s State Data Center program, BBER’s Data Bank is the state’s primary source for economic, social and demographic data.

For more than 70 years BBER’s exclusive focus has been the State of New Mexico.
