When deciding on the location of a business, demographics of the community can be as important as the physical address. Is there an adequate workforce to draw from? Do resident characteristics match that of your target market?
The Gateway Cities COG region covers about 203 square miles and is made up of 27 cities and 9 unincorporated communities. It’s a diverse population of about 2 million residents. Our website is a useful tool for entrepreneurs trying to determine the right spot for their business. In addition to site selection tools, users can run reports with demographic data that can be sorted by factors such as size of the labor force, educational attainment and income.
It’s simple to choose cities and compare demographic data. Reports can even be exported as Excel, Word or PDF files.
