Coeur D’Alene Tribe

Reservation Economic Analysis

BERK analyzed the Coeur D’Alene Reservation’s market position and economic development opportunities, building from the vision and ambitions articulated in the Tribe’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).

Quantitative analysis, including location quotients, employment and wage analysis, journey-to-work maps, and estimation of retail sales leakage, were combined with stakeholder interviews to identify target industries with potential for employment generation and retail niches that may be expanded to augment the goods and services available on the Reservation.
