Hi, I'm Rich Beem and I'm an Economist at the U.S. Census Bureau's Center for Economic Studies. I'm interested in state and local business activity, entrepreneurship, and employment dynamics.
Previously, I was a Research Assistant with the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Before that, I was a Research Fellow at the FDIC (Boston, MA) and Regional Economist at IHS Markit (Philadelphia, PA), formerly Global Insight.
