Population

A region's economy thrives or dives because of the people who choose to live there. That choice may be the happenstance of being born there and desiring to stay, or a more deliberate one of choosing to re-locate from somewhere else.

Monitoring change in the size and movement of population is an important barometer of well-being. Some of us monitor these changes as an insect might gauge the shifting sands, while most don't pay much attention. But the barometer is a good metaphor for population change, since it can presage more notable events, such as lackluster business attraction due to lack of workers.
