The Washington State Department of Commerce launched a new interactive dashboard to help track economic recovery across the state during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The dashboard takes data from public and private organizations to look at the impact of the pandemic on the state economy. The dashboard can be broken up by regions, demographics and industries.
The department hopes that local and state leaders can better focus economic recovery plans by tracking the impact of the pandemic.
“The economic impact of COVID-19 on individuals, families and businesses is like nothing we’ve ever seen before,” said Washington State Commerce Director Lisa Brown. “The depth and complexity of the challenge we’re dealing with demands that we use data in new ways to help every family, every community and every industry get back on their feet, stronger and more resilient than before.”
The dashboard was developed with CARES Act funding.
