Project Profile

Developing Web-based Economic Indicator Dashboard

Virginia’s Region 2000 Partnership
Start Date: Mar 2014 — End Date: Jul 2014

CREC created a customized Region 2000 Local Economy Dashboard which provided independent and objective data on how the Region 2000 economy was performing in six key areas. It covered recent trends and will be updated on a regular basis. It was designed to track local economic performance and to spark local conversations about building a more competitive regional economy.

This dashboard allows regional stakeholders to monitor their economic situation and inform their economic development strategies and priorities. This dashboard will be implemented in Summer 2014.
