Analyzing the Economy of a Large, Urban County: The Case of Kings County, New York

January 2010. An article by James Parrott that shows available data (in this case, for Brooklyn – Kings County) can be used to estimate the economic impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) at the county level. Published in The Journal of County Administration, Parrott’s article begins on page 3 of the issue; see also an introduction by the president of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce (p. 1) and an editorial touting such research (p. 10).
