Arkansas Economic Trends and Opportunities

The global economy has affected employment opportunities in many Arkansas communities and regions. To take advantage of new economic opportunities, the Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service's Community and Economic Development team can: 

  • Assist local leaders in Arkansas understand the global, national and local trends affecting their communities, 
  • Identify local assets on which to build the regional economy, 
  • Work with leaders to use this information to identify economic opportunities for their communities and regions and
  • Assist in the implementation of economic development strategies.

While some information on the social, economic and demographic trends in Arkansas are reported in the publications listed below, we also work with local leaders to identify trends specific to their community and region of the state.
