Since 1925, the IBRC has been collecting, organizing and finding meaning in the social and economic characteristics of our state. Beginning in the 1970s, the center began providing computer access to its databases and by the 21st century, has developed an award-winning and state-of-the-art interactive web service called STATS Indiana, Indiana’s leading source for economic and demographic data.
Data & Resources
STATS Indiana offers a variety of ways to obtain and present essential economic and demographic data for cities and counties, states and the nation. In addition, we provide access to our data through email and phone requests.
STATS Indiana is the most comprehensive demographic tool we use. Our job would be more time consuming and more difficult if we had to gather all of the information contained in STATS Indiana from multiple sources.J.
