Texoma Council of Governments: Texoma Regional Economic Dashboard

Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Texoma Regional Economic Dashboard (TRED) project is designed to provide an overall economic picture of a three-county region in North Texas. The Texoma Council of Governments collected various economic indicators from public data sources that will be analyzed and included in quarterly and annual reports that compare time periods and different geographic scales. An interactive dashboard tool with charts, graphs, and indicators of progress makes the data accessible for public consumption. TRED allows project partners and other interested parties to better understand the region’s economy, plan for the future, identify strengths and weaknesses, and apply for grants to execute projects that improve indicators. Future studies will also contain the Southeast Oklahoma region to gain a comprehensive understanding of the entire Texoma laborshed.
