Research

San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation (EDC) provides research and data to local companies to help them make well-informed decisions about operating within the region. For those companies outside of the region considering San Diego for expansion or relocation, EDC provides a variety of assistance including responding with formal proposals to professional site selectors.

Our data is related to state, federal and local incentives, in-depth information about industries, supply chains, workforce demographics, transportation and infrastructure assets available within the region.

Specific examples of the kind of data EDC provides include:

  • Cluster reports and economic impact studies on major industries in the region such as software and tech, cybersecurity, aerospaceresearch institutions and more.
  • Corporate economic impact studies on specific companies including iboss Cybersecurity and Qualcomm Inc.
  • Legislative impact relevant to the region including the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an international trade deal to lower trade barrier for U.S. exporters, and TransNet, the voter-approved half-cent sales tax to promote transportation development.
  • Responses to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for site selectors and corporate real estate representatives. With support from local partners and community business leaders in the San Diego region, dozens of RFPs are submitted annually to corporations exploring the region for investment. If you are a site selector interested in exploring San Diego for your next location, please contact Kate Gallagher at ksg@sandiegobusiness.org to get started.
