JEFFERSON CITY, Mo — The Missouri State Treasurer’s Office today announced it has released an update to the Missouri Economic Dashboard (MissouriDashboard.com), including new features and functionality.

The updated design allows users to compare Missouri’s unemployment rate, labor force participation rate and leading economic index to other states. Users can also now access historical data on county-level unemployment rates.

The Missouri Economic Dashboard was designed by a team of economists and government accounting experts and launched by State Treasurer Eric Schmitt in September of last year. The dashboard gives the public a snapshot of the state’s economic climate and features key data on unemployment, state and national debt, exports, housing, and more.

MissouriDashboard.com was the first economic dashboard in the nation to be launched by a state treasurer’s office. Prior to its launch, state economic indicators were extremely difficult to find and compare.
