GrowthEconomy.org adds congressional districts!!
03/08/2013 - Coming to a congressional district near you:
A partnership between the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), the Edward Lowe Foundation’s Institute for Exceptional Growth Companies and PitchBook, GrowthEconomy.org enables visitors to see sales and job growth data of private capital-backed companies versus other companies in the U.S. economy.
In addition to being able to sort data at national, state and metropolitan statistical area (MSA) levels, GrowthEconomy visitors can now drill down to 435 congressional districts.
“For the first time ever, people can see more than 23,000 private capital-backed companies in their respective congressional districts — and follow their performance through time,” says Gregg Cole, information technology research leader at the Edward Lowe Foundation, who built GrowthEconomy.org's dynamic engine and interface.
ACG has also released a book that graphically depicts data from GrowthEconomy for each congressional district. “Driving Growth,” which is organized by state, has been distributed on to all members of Congress, state governors, the media and academics. The book is available in PDF format at no charge. To download a copy, click here: (16MB .pdf)
