Data Request Services
How to request demographic and business information from the OEDE
Please note that simple business information and/or demographic requests are generally fulfilled within 5 business days. A simple request includes any information that the OEDE Staff deals with on a weekly basis and can immediately access. Examples of simple requests include general demographics, ring studies, traffic counts, unemployment statistics, retail sales, bed tax collections, labor force and wage statistics, and business statistics.
The information provided via our free data request services typically comes from a wide variety of secondary data sources. We do believe that the data is credible, but please note that we had no control over the data's creation or updating processes. Therefore, we cannot take responsibility for the data's reliability, completeness, or accuracy.
Data requests are fulfilled by the OEDE Staff via email only. Please check the email account submitted on the form below for the OEDE's response to your request.
Complex requests requiring dedicated staff research time may take up to two weeks or longer. Since complex requests are generally a unique project, we will contact you for clarification and provide you with further details as to how we can help meet your needs.
