Hibbs Institute for Business & Economic Research
Soules College of Business - The University of Texas at Tyler
At the Hibbs Institute, we’re interested in one goal: improving incomes and the quality of life for all East Texans. We do this by making it easier for businesses and economic development agencies to get good business information and relevant economic analysis. The Hibbs Institute provides rigorous, useful, independent business research and economic analysis for both businesses and governments in greater East Texas.
On one hand, The Hibbs Institute helps businesses understand relevant labor markets, supply chains and retail markets in East Texas, especially if they are looking to locate new facilities or expand their current operations in the region. And on the other, the Hibbs Institute assists regional councils, economic development councils, city and county governments and other agencies with the information they need to successfully promote economic development in the region.
