Over the past few working days, we have added several new data sets or made certain data sets available in areas of DIVER previously not available. Here is a brief list:
- Pension Plan, Funded Ratio at the State level is now available on the Map Page, Filter and PSC (Please note that for these data points, we went to the Pension Plan Actuarial Reports and/or CAFR (as applicable) – generally, this provides more current information that what is reported in the State level CAFR)
- Job Growth (“Unempl./Emply” Category) – beyond unemployment, this data set provides a look at the % change in the number of employed people over a one year period (really interesting v. unemployment rate – net, net, is the unemployment rate really going down?)
- Tornadoes (“Disasters” Category) – due to the unfortunate continuation of an active tornadoes season, we will continue to update this data set weekly.
- Nuclear Plants (“Other” category) – we include those operating and those that are operational but are in the process of decommissioning.
Also, don’t forget to check out the Muni Index at both the State and county level. Here we present a unique perspective as to how the States and counties look at a point in time and how they are trending.
DIVER Users, please keep your requests for data and functionality coming!
