The goal of StatsAmerica is to provide actionable data for economic developers to use in site requests, developing metrics, grant writing and strategic planning.
StatsAmerica is a service of the Indiana Business Research Center (IBRC) at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, which is ranked among the nation's top business schools. With support from the Economic Development Administration, they have developed a unique and useful set of tools and reports, as well as providing access to other EDA-funded projects.
They obtain thousands of data items from hundreds of data sets from dozens of federal and state sources, along with some commercial or private source data. You will see value in the form of calculations, graphs, comparisons of time or geography, time series and maps. To ensure total accuracy, all data are verified first by analyzing the source data and the resulting calculations. These data are updated as they are released and arrive from the sources.
