The NRV Data Dashboard is an interactive data tool that will change the way local governments, grant writers, non-profit organizations, and New River Valley citizens access data.  This dashboard makes regional demographic, economic, transportation, education, and community health data not only more accessible, but also easier to interpret. The dashboard can be accessed on the NRVRC website as a central location for regional data and will be maintained by the Regional Commission. You can find the dashboard here, https://nrvrc.org/datadashboard.

Since 1969 the Regional Commission has provided data to the region by publishing the Regional Data Book. The original data book was made available in print form and later as an electronic PDF document. The New River Valley Regional Data Dashboard incorporates various data points in an intuitive and interactive interface using Tableau, ARC GIS online, and other technologies. The Regional Commission is partnering with the Community Foundation of the NRV to provide a Livability Data Dashboard that includes data specific to the initiative. The Regional Commission is also working with the New River Valley Health District to explore ideas for incorporating dashboards related to their Community Health Improvement Plan.
