Govistics Unlocks Crime, Payroll DataPosted by in Notes
Govistics fans, rejoice! And those of you who haven’t signed up yet, you now have a laundry list of reasons to change your minds.
As of last week, Govistics’ tech and data master, Mike Silva, has officially upgraded the database with the following improvements:
- FBI Unified Crime Reports data for all municipalities reporting public safety information to the FBI
- A new year of spending, revenue, and employment data for municipalities
- Total payroll dollar figures (great to compare with employment counts) for municipalities
The database will also be more user-friendly, as what formerly took the form of “elevator buttons” to scroll through menu options have been replaced with drop-down menus. We made that change based on user feedback, so please be in touch with us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with questions or concerns.
Also, did we mention that you can now access all county data (every county in the U.S.A.!) at the Pro-level for free? We hope that you’ll test-drive the database at the county level, see how valuable Govistics can be for your research, and stick with us.
