NOTE: : Census developed this regional data tool as a resource for Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP) applicants and designees. While the tool was developed for the IMCP effort, the data available on this website are not required, and should not be the sole source of regional information, when applying for the IMCP designation/federal funding opportunity. This regional data tool is meant to be broadly applicable to communities and businesses that would like to assess their regional economies and assets, especially as it relates to their key technology/manufacturing sectors and business ecosystems. These data also can be used to help communities compare their regional economies and assets with those in other communities, against whom you may be compared by businesses seeking to locate their facilities. Businesses today are relying more and more on regional data when making these types of decisions. We trust that the data provided through this tool together with data available through other federal data bases, noted here and in the IMCP Playbook, will help you design an effective growth strategy. The Playbook identifies existing Federal planning grant and technical assistance resources and catalogues economic development best practices.
