FW: Online data resource updated with recent census figures

Online data resource updated with recent census figures,
adds interactive features

The University Research Center recently updated the online data resource,
the Mississippi Handbook of Selected Data, which contains maps, graphs and
tables displaying socio-economic data relevant for Mississippi. Last updated
in 2002, the Handbook is published exclusively on the web and features an
interactive table of contents for ease of navigating through the
publication.

³The Mississippi Handbook of Selected Data has always been a valuable
resource,² said Dr. Darrin Webb, State Economist and Director of the
University Research Center. ³The new interactive table of contents makes it
more accessible, while the real time updating keeps the data current. We
encourage users to send us their comments and suggestions for making this
even more useful.²

Rather than periodically publishing a single document, the new Mississippi
Handbook of Selected Data will be updated on a continuous basis, with each
page being updated as new data become available. An icon on each page allows
users to send an email to notify the University Research Center when new
data are available. Users can also use this icon to direct questions or
comments to URC staff members.

The Mississippi Handbook of Selected Data is posted on the University
Research Center website at www.mississippi.edu/urc
. Users can also access other URC
publications at this site such as Mississippi¹s Business, The Mississippi
Outlook, and Economic Trends.
