Press Room

Welcome to The Center For Carolina Living pages dedicated to informing the press and marketing research teams on how the Tourism and In-migration Industries are economically linked.

The $41 billion Carolina Tourism Industry is the “birth-mother” of the $39 billion In-migration Industry. These two Carolina wealth generators are now recognized as leading edge sectors in our economy and are warranted to grow for the next 25 years.

About half the work The Center For Carolina Living relates to combining primary research results from our visitor survey systems with University studies, the U.S. Census and national forecasting organizations to track growth trends.

Pat MasonOur 26-question Carolina Lifestyle Survey™ (PDF) collects demographic and psychographic motivational data from 4,000 families annually. Using sophisticated SQL tools, the data reports carry samples that deliver up to 93% confidence levels for business and policy decision making. National Change of Address Audits track and document relocation counts.

We welcome collaborative research opportunities and look forward to serving your goals.
