Let Your Data Shine

The number and percentage of North Dakotans age 65 and older who work as paid employees, in their own business or profession, or on their own farm, increased in the past decade.  Some reasons for this increase in working adults include the aging of the baby boom generation, increased longevity, and higher educational attainment for older adults.

With a common mission, North Dakota Compass and North Dakota KIDS COUNT collaborate on multiple projects, one of which being the annual State Legislative District Profiles. The profiles are intended to encourage dialogue among legislators, members of government agencies, community-based organizations, educators, individuals, and businesses about how to best support communities and residents in North Dakota. The profiles add value to both programs by providing data at a different level of geography than they historically provided (i.e., state, planning region, tribal area, and county).

In this article, Ina Cernusca and Karen Olson go behind the scenes and reveal the process of creating the North Dakota State Legislative District Profiles.
