Keeping a finger on the pulse of the marketplace is critical to the success of an organization. Understanding demographic, business, and economic data allows you to make informed decisions. Data is a fundamental tool, used by decision makers, when determining how to respond to economic and social challenges.
The Business Navigator Alliance of Southcentral and Southeastern Illinois hosted a webinar to dive into data for decision makers on Thursday, April 27th at 10:30 a.m. Zachary Kennedy, State Lead for the Illinois State Census Data Center and University of Illinois Extension Specialist for Community and Economic Development guided us through local and regional data points.
