As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office amidst calls for reshoring and growing American jobs, StateBook International provides a detailed snapshot of the nation’s 3,112 pro-Trump and pro-Hillary counties by education, occupation, income, poverty levels, age and race and ethnicity.
As Trump works to make good on his promises to double economic growth to over 4 percent and to create 25 million new jobs in 10 years, the nation will be watching to see how these county characteristics actually evolve.
Many economic development organizations are already examining how many people are employed in their counties, where their industry clusters are and what degrees, certificates and awards are being offered in their communities, then comparing that data to the actual open jobs postings in their communities to understand how best to address workforce skills gaps that may exist in their communities. These issues, coupled with the need to update much of our national infrastructure, address tax and regulation issues, budget shortfalls and more will present significant challenges to the president-elect’s agenda.
As America sets itself up to keep businesses operating within U.S. borders and to reshore operations from abroad, StateBook's comprehensive economic development data and tools offers businesses, policymakers and economic development organizations a trusted source to access and analyze thousands of data points for their specific needs - all characteristics crucial to corporate location decision-making in building sustainable operations and details American counties rely on when implementing economic development best practices.
StateBook provides more than 63,000 comparable data points from 50+ aggregated sources for every community in the country by county, MSA, state and customized geographies. Our StateBook goals always include saving site selectors, businesses, and economic development organizations time and resources through organized, updated and trusted data. We also use data to shine a light on important issues related to economic development and investments.
With these goals in mind, we wanted to share with you the release of our inaugural report highlighting information and rankings on "America's Deficient Bridges: A State-by-State Comparison".
StateBook CEO Calandra Cruickshank presented this report at the International Economic Development Council 2016 Federal Forum analyzing 611,845 bridges throughout the U.S. with 134 fields of data recently released about these bridges from the Federal Highway Administration.
