Census launches web tool for regional data analysis

The Census Bureau has released a new web application that allows planning and economic development users to explore regional data from the Bureau’s economic programs and the American Community Survey.

The Census Business Builder: Regional Analyst Edition, which is now available in beta,  allows users to select the economic sector, location, and data variable via an interactive map.

This is the second edition of the app and incudes a new feature that allows users to create a report from an entire region and individual business sectors within the region. Additional features include trend charts that identify changes over time for data, the ability to compare data with neighboring countries and downloadable and printable reports with regional summary and county-level information.

Users of the web tool are encouraged to email feedback to [email protected]
