Southwest Insights Online Interactive Tool

Today we’re looking at the Southwest Region of the #NEThrivingIndex — 95 and ranking 5th among seven peers.

We can be proud of leading peers in economic conditions indexes — quality of life, social capital and infrastructure & cost of doing business. First place in the measures of commute times, age of housing stock and access to arts and recreation opportunities.

However the challenges are in the labor resources of the region. Specifically, the other prosperities index as well as education & skill and demographic growth & renewal indexes.
