Each month, Elevate Rapid City puts together an "Economic Indicators" report. This monthly report tracks key data to give a taste for what is happening with the local economy. Data points include employment rate, weekly wages, sales, real estate, housing, and more. Investors of Elevate also have access to a more in-depth report that includes year-over-year and month-over-month comparisons and more categories. Click here to view an example.
