"We're really excited to launch JobsReport.io and give America's jobs data a much-needed upgrade." - Mike Reich, CEO / Founder, Seabourne Inc.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
April’s jobs numbers are available today at JobsReport.io, a comprehensive dashboard that presents jobs, employment, and other economic data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics in a clear, powerful way for the first time.
Instead of poring through reams of data and pushing information through traditional analysis software, JobsReport.io cleans, organizes, and makes America’s jobs data easily for anyone to understand. Seabourne Inc., a Washington D.C.-based technology innovation company, produced JobsReport.io to open up this valuable government data to a wider audience.
“We’re really excited to give America’s jobs report a much-needed upgrade,” says Seabourne CEO / founder Mike Reich. “Before today, the options for acquiring and digesting each month’s jobs and employment numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics were extremely limited. By releasing JobsReport.io, we’re adding value to the public and private sectors by opening government data and making jobs data easier to understand.”
JobsReport.io runs on DelRay, an information management platform developed by Seabourne’s team of developers, designers, and information management specialists. The dashboard lets users quickly digest high-level information about each month's jobs report and clearly see how that data has changed over time. In addition to top level data and analysis, JobsReport.io also provides in-depth access to all of the monthly jobs data provided by BLS -- a rich resource of raw information that's made accessible by this new dashboard.
“JobsReport.io was a passion project for our team,” says Reich. “We built this on the DelRay platform, all in a 24-hour development sprint, to show that big data sets don’t have to be big nightmares. With newsrooms shrinking and every writer doing more with less, the large lift needed to analyze jobs data just seemed unsustainable and unnecessary. JobsReport.io can empower writers, policy makers, and analysts alike to better understand what’s going on with the American jobs landscape.”
