Economics and Market Research

The AIA Economics and Market Research group provides AIA members with insights and analysis of the economic factors that shape the business of architecture.

We conduct monthly and periodic surveys to track business conditions and provide our members with useful and timely analysis. We also work with and use data from other institutions to compile information that helps explain the market dynamics of the architecture business.

Using our quantitative expertise and deep knowledge of the architecture marketplace, we strive to provide top-notch reports and industry outlooks to help our members better understand their economic environment and how it affects their firm’s performance.

View our most popular publications, the Compensation Report and Firm Survey Report, as well as Work-on-the-Boards, our monthly report highlighting results from our survey on business conditions. In addition, you will find monthly economic indicators and other useful economic information to help you make better business decisions.
