R. Mark Rogers is the author of the nationally recognized Handbook of Key Economic Indicators, First and Second Editions [McGraw-Hill Professional Publishing, 1994 and 1998, Chinese version, 1999]. He has lectured nationally on the use and analysis of economic data with the Institute for Professional Education, Arlington, VA. Rogers is an economic consultant, with expertise in corporate and government applications. (Visit Rogers Economics.)

Rogers spent 19 years as economist for the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, primarily as macroeconomic forecast coordinator for the Macropolicy Group and supervising economist for the Atlanta Federal Reserve’s Survey of Southeastern Manufacturing. Rogers has taught economic forecasting and economics in an adjunct capacity for Emory University and Clayton University and State College.

Rogers has used his expertise in public service as a governor’s appointee to the Georgia Commission on Child Support, 1998, and was the commission's only member economist. In this role, Rogers researched the origins of Georgia’s guidelines and its conflicts with long-established, mainstream economic theory. His child cost research included, but was not limited to: a review of child support guideline methodologies, child costs by differing methodologies, analysis of differential tax treatment for custodial and non-custodial parents, and comparative standards of living for custodial and non-custodial parents. His child cost research continues, focusing on guideline presumptions compared to actual economic data on child costs.

Rogers has testified as an expert witness in Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. He has consulted on child cost issues for clients in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington State, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Rogers also has testified on child support issues before legislative committees in Georgia, Minnesota, Texas, and Virginia and by invitation before the U.S. Congress. He has presented to child support review commissions in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, and Virginia.
