On behalf of the Pacific Northwest Regional Economic Analysis Project (PNREAP), greetings and welcome to the California Regional Economic Analysis Project. Using the interactive regional economic tools of analysis at your disposal on this website, we invite you to conduct your own research to examine and assess changing economic conditions and trends of counties or regions within California.
CA-REAP features data and regional economic tools of analysis that apply to the 58 California counties and California's 26 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). To further enhance the investigation of the California economy in a regional policy and planning context, these website resources additionally assemble the data and introduce tools of analysis for conducting research on California's 6 Proposed States.

Launched in 2013 Draper's controversial Six Californias Initiative aimed to create six states with more local, responsive, efficient and representative governments.
