Learn how you can leverage the power of the Iowa Profile data tool to generate custom demographic, economic and housing reports for your region, minimize costs related to housing needs assessments and be your office MVP!
The Iowa Profile is a free resource and provides interactive and downloadable data on a statewide and county-level basis as well as Iowa’s largest cities, housing trust fund and Council of Government Regions as well as fully-customizable regions and census tract-level mapping.
The tool provides useful data to city, county and state planners, developers, Realtors, housing advocates and others interested in the health and change in Iowa’s housing markets, economy and population.
The session will include an in-depth demonstration, overview of the data that powers the resource as well as examples of how communities and planning organizations may use it to fulfill their planning needs.
