Y’all Business, Mississippi’s website for free economic development information is one of four finalists in the National Association of Secretaries of State 2018 IDEAS Award contest.
NASS recently named Mississippi among its top-four finalist states for development of Y’all Business, www.yallbusiness.sos.ms.gov.
Other finalists include initiatives in California, Colorado, and Indiana. The first-place IDEAS Award winner will be announced and recognized at the NASS Summer Conference in July 2018 in Philadelphia.
Launched in 2015, www.yallbusiness.sos.ms.gov combines demographic and economic data with business and consumer data from ESRI, a GIS software company. The website analyzes all of Mississippi’s 82 counties, and metropolitan and micropolitan areas. Y’all Business relaunched in 2017, adding new data and a mobile interface, among other features.
