Register for the Data Deep Dive Webinar Series

Posted on: February 5th, 2020 by Brett Schwartz

To reach its full potential, a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) (http://www NULL.eda NULL.gov/ceds) should be grounded in accurate and accessible data that facilitates a region-wide conversation about economic development.  Without a solid understanding of key metrics, trends, demographics, and more, a region is at a major disadvantage in planning for the future.  Fortunately for organizations tasked with writing a CEDS, there are a variety of trusted data sources and tools available – many of them free of charge.

The NADO Research Foundation’s Data Deep Dive webinar series will feature three organizations and their data tools and maps that can be easily accessed to collect, interpret, and share data to better prepare your CEDS and other regional plans.  Each free webinar will feature a live demonstration of the tools and time for Q & A.
