The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is charged with the responsibility to plan and build the landmark projects that support economic growth today and tomorrow.

An important part of our mission is keeping the public, and especially you, the people who live and work in this dynamic region, informed of the efforts that are being taken by the Port Authority and our partners toward those goals.


The Monthly Economic Indicator report is designed to provide economists and analysts a timely and comprehensive picture of activity on the agency's multi-modal transportation system and the 18-county regional economy. To receive this newsletter via email, please contact
