Department of Planning Launches New “Data Mine” Blog

The Maryland Department of Planning (MDP) has launched a new blog called “The Data Mine.”  From an August 1 MDP press release:

 The blog will help communicate data and analysis about trends in population, housing, employment and other topics related to Maryland. It will highlight the work of the Maryland State Data Center (MSDC), a division of MDP. The Data Center monitors development trends, analyzes social, economic and other characteristics and prepares projections about population, housing, employment, labor and income. The center’s work is the baseline for planning in Maryland and is relied on by state and local governments, the private sector and non-profit institutions. The MSDC also serves as Maryland’s official partner with the U.S. Census Bureau.

“The Data Mine” will include articles and commentary about U.S. Census data, socio-economic trends, population and household projections and all things demographic. Its principal contributors are Mark Goldstein, who manages MDP’s Demographic and Socioeconomic Projections Unit, and Jane Traynham, manager of the Maryland State Data Center.
