A data story to attract businesses and new residents

According to United Van Lines 2020 National Movers Study more than 45% of people moving to Iowa that year did so for a job. In contrast, people moving to Florida, one of the fastest growing state according to the 2020 census, did so for a job only 21% of the time. What is going on in Iowa?

Business, that's what.

And smack dab in the middle of Iowa sits Ames. Home to Iowa State University and much, much more. But how much more is a story best told through the numbers.

The recently launched Ames MSA economic and workforce dashboard is a powerful example of why it pays to get in front of your own narrative and intrigue businesses with a well-crafted data narrative. Cheers!
