Monthly Economic and Revenue Updates
In order to promote the free flow of information the agency distributes a monthly Economic and Revenue Update.
The staff of the Economic and Revenue Forecast Council prepares a publication to update the members of the Council and the Work Group on current conditions.
RCW 82.33.040 requires the agency to provide revenue collection information the first business day following the conclusion of each collection period (currently 10th of each month, however this will be changing in the spring of 2018 due to availability of revenue data).
This page will include these monthly reports for the current forecast period. The forecast is revised each quarter.
Quarterly Economic and Revenue Forecast Publication
Each quarter the staff of the Economic and Revenue Forecast Council prepares a publication that goes in depth into the assumptions and data used in the quarterly forecasts.
Each publication updates the track record of the forecast (found in Chapter 3).
A popular data set available in this publication is the selected inflation indicators. Please note that Washington does not have its’ own Consumer Price Index (CPI), the closest representation to a “Washington CPI” is the Seattle Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) which includes Seattle, Tacoma, and Bremerton. The inflation indicators are found in the Appendix section.
