STATS America Tool Webinar Now Available for Download

Posted on: July 25th, 2013 by Brett Schwartz

On July 25, the NADO Research Foundation and the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) (http://www NULL.eda NULL.gov/)  hosted a webinar highlighting STATS America (http://www NULL.statsamerica NULL.org/), one of several data tools available at no-cost to economic development practitioners and others across the nation.

STATS America is a service of the Indiana Business Research Center (http://www NULL.ibrc NULL.indiana NULL.edu/) at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business (http://kelley NULL.iu NULL.edu/).  They have obtained thousands of data items from hundreds of data sets through a variety of federal and state sources, along with some commercial and private source data.  While STATS America adds value to this data through easy access and functionality, the tool acknowledges the direct agency source of the data on every table, profile, or map.

Economic development organizations, practitioners, policy makers, and other stakeholders are encouraged to watch to learn how this tool can be useful in your planning and decision-making processes.

This webinar is part of a series that will occur in 2013, highlighting EDA-funded data tools.  The first two webinars in this series addressed the U.S. Cluster Map and Registry (http://clustermapping NULL.us/) and Triple Bottom Line (http://www NULL.tbltool NULL.org/).  Future webinars will address other EDA-funded data tools, including National Excess Manufacturing Capacity Catalog (http://edastayusa NULL.org/NEXCAP_fact_sheet_2 NULL.pdf#zoom=100)Regional Innovation Accelerator Network (RIAN) (http://www NULL.regionalinnovation NULL.org/content NULL.cfm?article=about-rian), and more.

Please contact NADO Deputy Executive Director Laurie Thompson at [email protected] (lthompson null@null nado NULL.org) if you have any questions about this webinar, or the series in general.

 

The NADO Research Foundation is coordinating the webinars as part of its Know Your Region program which is funded through an agreement with the U.S. Economic Development Administration (#99-06-07548).
