U.S. Census Bureau Releases New Tool for Regional Business and Demographic ResearchPosted on 02/03/2016
A new Web application, Census Business Builder: Regional Analyst Edition now available in beta, allows users to easily explore data from Census Bureau economic programs and the American Community Survey for a user-defined economic region built from one or more counties.
This second edition of Census Business Builder follows the successful launch of Census Business Builder: Small Business Edition , which provides statistics for a single type of business and area on the same demographic and economic characteristics as the new edition. A new feature of the regional analyst tool is the ability to build a region from one or more counties and create a report for the entire region and the individual business sectors within the region.
- Trend charts to identify changes over time for selected data.
- Ability to compare data with neighboring counties.
- Downloadable and printable reports with regional summary- and county-level information.
Users are encouraged to provide comments on this beta release by sending their feedback to email@example.com .
