Track: Economic Development
Authors: Jami Dennis
In this age of Big Data, organizations often find themselves data rich but information poor. All the data in the world can’t help decision makers if they do not understand it. The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) performs regional economic analysis with a myriad of data. The final analysis is then provided to decision makers as infographics with maps, charts, tables, and other graphics. This allows for often complicated data analysis to be quickly grasped and understood.
