Economic Policy Institute Datazone

Another way to get a sense of the key factors that are at work and determine how well our economy is doing is to take a look at National Data from the EPI Datazone. Many more factors are available for review either by subcategory such as unemployment rates, or by downloading a spreadsheet with all the time series data for all the factors.

There are many more factors presented on the reference web page than were included in the article noted in our previous post - How is Our Economy Doing?

The one key thing that is missing is some way to make it easy for the lay person to quickly view all the the key factors, one at at a time, in an easy to ready trend graphic display .

A key goal of this blog is to help us move in the direction of ready reusability and we will be returning to this them in future posts.
