January 10, 2014

An analysis of the New Jersey Bankers Association’s 2014 Economic Survey, conducted by the Bloustein Center for Survey Research, will be presented on Friday, January 17, 9-11 a.m. at the Special Events Forum, Civic Square Building, 33 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick, N.J., on the campus of Rutgers University.

The survey inquires about national and state current economic assessments, as well as six-month projections; expectations about long-term and short-term interest rates; commercial real estate submarket and loan demand; and residential loan and refinance demand. The survey also explores real estate values, currently and expected, as well as a set of negative indicators and common obstacles to lending. The 2014 Economic Survey is the fourth annual in the NJBankers Annual Economic Survey series. It probes metrics about the national, state, and banking market economies in order to better understand, and, in turn, better facilitate the growth, development, and common interests of the banking sector in the state of New Jersey.

John E. McWeeney, Jr., president and CEO, New Jersey Bankers Association will provide an overview of the survey. Marc D. Weiner, assistant research professor; associate director and faculty fellow, Bloustein Center for Survey Research, will present the survey methodology and James W. Hughes, dean, Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University will present the findings.

The survey was conducted by the Bloustein Center for Survey Research (BCSR) at Rutgers University’s Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy under the direction of James Hughes, Marc Weiner and BCSR senior research specialist Orin Puniello.  The survey sampled all 119 member institutions of the New Jersey Bankers Association and received a 63 percent response rate.
