INTRODUCTION

IMPLAN has a section of Pre-built Dashboards in the Data Library that we like to call Footprint. The Dashboards available in Data Library Footprint are useful for studying Employment within an Industry or Occupation for a given Region. This article will walk through how to locate the Footprint and the data points available there.
