Social and Economic Impact Assessments

Social and Economic Impact Assessments
Communities want to understand the social and economic impacts of policies
and investments proposed by public, private and not-for-profit institutions.
Keen Independent Research provides an outside, objective perspective on how planned actions can affect households, businesses, public agencies and entire communities.

Keen Independent often focuses on how historically marginalized groups might be affected. We can then recommend ways to enhance positive effects and mitigate any negative impacts. Our impact analyses can be incorporated into larger assessments or planning studies.
