The Office of Economic Analysis (OEA) provides objective forecasts of the state's economy, revenue, population, corrections population, and Youth Authority population. These forecasts are used by the Governor, the Legislature, state agencies, and the public to achieve their goals.
The Office of Economic Analysis released the
current economic forecast and the current revenue forecast on February 22, 2017. The next forecast will be released on May 16, 2017.
