The above indicators are aimed at providing information to the business community, Town Council and citizens regarding both local and national economic conditions that may affect local tourism. The Town is continuing to monitor these and update this page on a monthly basis in order to inform interested parties of trends over time. Examples of indicators include: local retail, real estate and lodging sales, foreclosures, unemployment (local, state and national), traffic numbers at the Eisenhower tunnel and Highway 9, and sales tax comparisons to other ski resort areas.

The economic indicators were developed as a result of the Breckenridge Economic Development Advisory Committee recommended actions in 2010. It later became incorporated into the Sustainable Breck Plan which furthers the goals of the Town's Vision Plan through developing recommendations for environmental, economic and social sustainability.
