Your data central

YourEconomy Time Series Data

This innovative way to view business data gets down in the weeds with local, private businesses. The ones that public and federal data sources don’t have. Information is gathered and verified by marketing firms. The BDRC assembles, sorts and verifies historical data with our own algorithms and processes. The resulting time series data shows performance at the level you need to make informed strategic decisions.

Growth Economy

Private equity has broken records for investment in recent years. But how do equities-backed companies compare to other businesses? BRDC’s Growth Economy database shows the effect of PE businesses and their sustained growth on the middle market of the U.S. economy. With data from YourEconomy and PitchBook, the leading provider of independent private equity research and data, Growth Economy shows changes at individual establishments for U.S., state, and MSA regions, as well as congressional districts, throughout the entire time series from 1998-2017. Dynamic searches yield both data and graphs based on user criteria.

Gregg Cole

Research & Technology Innovator

The type of project that is most meaningful to Gregg is the kind in which conventional wisdom says it can’t be done. By 2015, Gregg had designed 5 large data driven websites conveniently displaying a broad range of economic data throughout the U.S. for anyone to access, and provided raw establishment data and services to more than 65 researchers from the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Jessica Nelson

Program Manager

Jess’ favorite aspect of the job is being able to sift through all the data to find meaningful information that actually helps people make better informed decisions. It’s like a big puzzle that she loves to work on solving! She finds the most meaning in projects and client work that allow her to really understand the “why” of what the client is trying to solve. She gets really jazzed when she can see her expertise and experience making a difference in client success!
