This project constructed an economic dashboard for Genesee County (Flint, Michigan) that identified, monitored, ranked, and compared key regional factors to other metro areas. The resulting dashboard enables economic development organizations and stakeholders in Genesee County to better focus their efforts by identifying the regional factors most associated with economic growth. Secondly, the dashboard allows economic development stakeholders to compare Genesee County's performance with other metro areas in the nation. The comparison is composed of variables that can be updated annually, thus providing the Genesee County economic development community an indicator which tracks the impact of its economic development initiatives.
