Economic and workforce developers are always expected to have a pulse on the local economy and know its levers and pulleys. As communities grapple with the impacts and economic fallout of COVID-19, this is more true than ever. By providing sound data to help frame conversations and make better decisions, economic development organizations can greatly assist in efforts to lessen the immediate shock and quicken the recovery.
