This set of reports examines economic and demographic developments in Lea County, New Mexico, and the larger region of southeastern New Mexico and west Texas. The major objective was to develop a new forecast for the economy of Lea County within the context of the larger region and to develop new population estimates and projections that reflect the changes occurring within the region. There are four documents in the series: Executive Summary; the Economy of Lea County and the Larger Region; Survey of Lea County Employers; and Population, Housing and Education in Lea County.
