The Research & Business Analytics Division monitors key economic metrics and current economic trends and conditions that are important to the local economy. The division is charged with maintaining databases and online resources of economic and demographic data. It also coordinates joint research efforts with other City/County departments and provides research support and technical assistance to other City/County staff requiring special expertise in demographics, economic analysis, and GIS.
The division implements both quantitative and qualitative analyses for business recruitment, retention, and expansion activities. Moving forward, this division will develop and implement new data resources, dashboards, and reports to concisely and comprehensively present information to the policymakers and public regarding the economic performance of our community.
