Interactive Data

Successful implementation of the CEDS in the 21st Century requires a local web-based repository of strategies, data, and other economic resources for all stakeholders and population of the region at large that are understandable, accessible, and actionable. The Centralina Economic Development District manages a data warehouse as a service to the community and our partners.

This interactive data portal maintains an up-to-date repository of economic, transportation, workforce, and community information to empower local leaders and stakeholders in their decision-making processes. We have created short instructional videos to provide users with more in-depth guidance on how to access and utilize the data portal. Click here to learn more.
