UC Santa Barbara’s Economic Forecast Project (EFP) is bringing back a once popular, but long defunct, program to examine the overall health of the region. The 2017 Santa Barbara Community Indicators Report (SBCIR) will take place Tuesday, Sept. 26 from 3-5 p.m. in the Board Hearing Room of the Santa Barbara County Administrative Building.

The presentation, which promises an updated look at key factors affecting the Central Coast, is free and open to the public. It requires no prior registration or RSVP.

EFP Executive Director Peter Rupert, also a professor of economics at UCSB, will first discuss current social, environmental and economic data for both the North County and the South Coast. Teni Adedeji, EFP research assistant, will then present data about poverty and education. The evening will close with remarks by Bhupi Singh, executive vice president of Direct Relief.
