Real-World Data. Real-World Solutions Courtney Taylor, PCED Interim Director, Center for International Business and Economic Development
Why We Use EMSI Ease of Use Depth of Data Immediacy of Data Late Addition: it can’t be shut down during a government shutdown
How We Use EMSI Custom Reports & Analysis – Labor Force – Occupation Match – Industries – Demographics Economic Impact Analyses – EI of recruitment efforts – Theoretical Impacts – Academic studies Assistance with RFI’s Compare Competing Communities (when known)
Example of a Request Courtney, We have a prospect, we need some numbers. Courtney, Don’t you have that cool data thing you can use to help us out with some labor force numbers?
Out of those Requests 8-10 external Data runs/month MINIMUM At least one Analysis/Month Immeasurable “Goodwill” return We are now a resource to people who once viewed universities as “ivory tower people”
Another Request… Courtney, We need help showing an available labor force for in our region to help target new manufacturers.

A professor from the College of Education needed to know about future demand for Elementary School Teachers. As usual, data was needed IMMEDIATELY.
Curiosity Lawrence County, Alabama is slated to lose 1045 jobs at a paper mill in early 2014. – I was curious about impacts…but I’m not an economist. – That’s where EMSI (AKA Desktop Economist) came in…
Quick Data What are the general demographics for my area? What is the largest Industry? Is my area outperforming the state, region, competing area, or nation in a certain industry? What occupations are growing? Shrinking? Are there gaps in educational programs? What are the largest businesses in my region? Demographics, occupations, industries, etc within a certain distance from a point.
Future? More Analyses, less “runs” More partnerships with professionals Less time per data run/analysis Develop template for most common data requests Continue to encourage local economic developers to embrace data.
