Black Country Annual Economic Review Annual Economic Review (formerly called State of the Sub Region) is our annual report which focuses on the 'indicators' in the Black Country Performance Management Framework, which enable us to understand if the Black Country is making real progress towards achievement of the aspirations set within the Black Country Vision and the Black Country Strategy for Growth and Competitiveness.

It also includes a range of information from over the last 12 months, providing a Black Country picture of the impact and direction of travel.
