The Louisiana Economic Outlook (LEO) provides employment forecasts for
Louisiana and the state’s eight metropolitan statistical areas. The LEO is updated annually and released each fall in October. Following the publication of each LEO, results are presented throughout the state to provide business leaders with a timely economic outlook for their region. This year’s edition marks the 30th annual publication of the LEO by the Division of Economic Development. The 2012-2013 LEO combines econometric models and input from industry contacts compiled by LSU Professor Emeritus Loren Scott and LSU Public Administration Institute Director James Richardson, two of the most highly regarded economists in Louisiana. The LEO offers Louisiana’s business leaders the most in-depth assessment available of Louisiana’s economy and the outlook for the coming years.
