Demographic data is essential in gauging the strength of a community or area, as well as comparing the strengths of one community against another. Economic developers need to know where they stand in areas of cost of living, population, housing, unemployment, per capita income, educational enrollment, availability of labor resources, etc. in order to help their own business community, as well as attract new and expanding businesses to the area.
