Your data central

Your Economy

This innovative way to view business data tracks all establishments – businesses (from sole proprietors to large corporations), nonprofit organizations, schools, farms, government agencies and more, for over 20 years. Our data includes may establishment types that aren’t tracked in public and federal data sources. Information is gathered and verified by marketing firms. BDRC assembles, sorts and verifies historical data with our own algorithms and processes. The resulting time series data shows performance at the level you need to make informed strategic decisions.

Gregg Cole

Director of Research & Technology

The type of project that is most meaningful to Gregg is the kind in which conventional wisdom says it can’t be done. By 2015, Gregg had designed 5 large data driven websites conveniently displaying a broad range of economic data throughout the U.S. for anyone to access, and provided raw establishment data and services to more than 65 researchers from the U.S., Canada and Europe.
