What we do

We write impact reports on legislation that could have a major effect on the city’s economy.

We track the local economy and provide updates to decision-makers and the public. See our monthly economic indicators reports.

We do special reports upon request from the Mayor or members of the Board of Supervisors. Past special reports topics have included:

How we work

Each week we review all proposed legislation introduced before the Board of Supervisors. We also review all ballot measures.

Legislation with a significant economic impact requires a full economic impact report. For each piece of legislation, we determine if a full economic impact report is needed.

We post these decisions on our report portal within one week after the item is introduced.
