The Maine Economic Research Institute (MERI) is a nonpartisan, independent, not-for-profit organization created to conduct research, analysis, and reporting on economic issues. A primary focus for MERI is how state policies affect Maine’s economy.
MERI is committed to a healthy economy and quality jobs.
The MERI website is rich in data on Maine's economy and a great resource to Maine citizens looking for information on how their state legislators perform on key economic issues. Historical data are available beginning with the 119th Maine State Legislature. Each electorial cycle MERI surveys candidates for state office without historical economic ratings and posts their responses under the Products & Services section.
MERI can provide customized data in several formats for specific needs. Some custom formats need lead times to create. Contact us for specifics.
