CAPE GIRARDEAU - The Community Policy Analysis Center, housed at the University of Missouri, has begun conducting an economic baseline study for the Mississippi River Hills Region. Scott County is included in the region.

The baseline study examines historical patterns of employment, labor force, commuting patterns, population, taxable retail sales, county revenues and expenditure, and other key economic and demographic variables. The information is used to provide 10 year projections of demographic and economic variables. The purpose of the study is to help groups think about issues that their communities might face in the future.
