Introducing Show-Me Data
Have you ever wondered whether it would be cheaper to fill up your gas tank on this side of the Mississippi River, or in Illinois? Ever get into an argument about whether Missouri is a “low-tax state” (we do) and wonder whether you’re correct? Thanks to Show-Me Data, you can answer these questions and more.
This week, the Show-Me Institute unveiled Show-Me Data. Show-Me Data is an interactive web tool that allows users to create custom charts that track a state or region’s economic or demographic information over time. It also allows users to compare this information to other states.
Not only can you create your own charts on Show-Me Data, the site also features a “Popular Charts” section that has already constructed charts containing information that we have deemed to have popular appeal. You can share these charts, along with any charts you create, with your friends on Facebook and on Twitter.
We will have more posts soon about how to use Show-Me Data. For now, feel free to look around and start using the site. Also, please let us know your reactions to the site and any tips on how to make things better. You can contact us here. Thanks for taking a look. We hope you enjoy it.
