Developing an Infrastructure Index - Phase II

Building on the work in Phase I of the project with Michael Gallis & Associates to develop an infrastructure index for the US Chamber of Commerce, this phase requires continued interaction with the US Chamber of Commerce Staff, and the project team in the form of meetings and regular conference calls. The meetings will also include stakeholder input. The role in this phase focuses on refining the transportation index and developing the sector specific infrastructure indices for energy, water and broadband. This includes gathering the data, assembling the input for the weighting and developing the model that serves as the calculator for the index. The methodology will follow a similar approach to that used for the Transportation index with some recognition that the sampling strategy will be modified to reflect the organizational structure of the data and the specific types of data may vary. In the last part of this phase is the interaction will largely be in the form of discussion with Susanne Trimbath of STP Advisory Services to explore the relationship between the indices and the US economy.
