We believe in research-based community development.

Empowering research uses data to help leaders make decisions about economic development that are more strategic and, ultimately, to create the kinds of economic development outcomes and long-term community or regional prosperity you desire. We work hard to build tools and resources that communities can use to access and understand data and turn that raw information into knowledge you can apply in your community.

Taking Stock – The Power of Assessment

Making the right development choices is a prerequisite for achieving community and regional prosperity. The best way to make these decisions is to commit to a thoughtful and robust assessment of your region’s opportunities. By taking the time to discover and better understand your region’s genuine development opportunities, you will make smarter investments and enhance your region’s potential for greater prosperity.
