Public data is very difficult to analyze and we have made complicated public data sets very accessible and useful to a wide range of users.
Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
Public Insight has announced the expansion of its public data analytics platform (http://www.publicinsightdata.com) to encompass all fifty states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The new site has also been rebranded from 360-Public to Public Insight. Users can now analyze and benchmark public data across states, counties, school districts, higher education institutions, and zip codes with cities to follow shortly. This includes thousands of data metrics across national sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and National Center for Education Statistics.
The expanded national platform creates additional opportunities for public data analysis across a wide variety of stakeholders covering education, demographics, and economics. For example, the recently released implementation of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is now supplemented with census data from school districts across the country.
The new Report Builder application provides a whole new level of capability to customize analysis across multiple data sets. Users can combine any metric with any visualization for any period. Reports are saved as templates and can be combined with entities at run-time. For example, users could analyze educational attainment from the U.S. Census against labor trends. The analysis could be run for counties for a specific region and then compared to other counties in a different region.
“Public data is very difficult to analyze and we have made complicated public data sets very accessible and useful to a wide range of users,” Public Insight CEO Dan Quigg said. “Otherwise complicated data analysis can be broken down in a few mouse clicks. Peer comparisons and historical analysis can be accomplished in minutes as opposed to hours and even days with government sites and tools.”
The site offers several levels of analysis, from “public” to paid subscriptions, which provide increased reporting and data analysis tools. There is no charge to use the public tool.
