The CDTech Center recognizes that community planning and economic development strategies require reliable information, both quantitative and qualitative, about the community, its residents, its markets and its assets. Frequently, community groups lack access to the relevant statistical data sources or the capacity to fully employ data in order to augment their projects with timely, useful information. The private and public sectors also need more reliable information to make economic development decisions.

CDTech believes that access to relevant statistical information and data can greatly contribute to community economic development initiatives. Through our research program, CDTech offers customized data research services to aid community and economic development professionals.
