Houston Strategies referred me to this well-done compilation by the St. Louis, Missouri-based East-West Gateway Council of Goverments, of data comparing St. Louis to different metro areas around the nation in terms of our many demographic points – education, age, race, income, etc.  – using the latest available data.

If you are interested in keeping up with the Jones (or at least benchmarking your community against them!), this looks like a good resource.

Great resource! I was surprised by some of the Pittsburgh stats. Despite our formidable demographic challenges, our economic output isn’t too bad… and we have a fairly healthy tech sector. The number of women and minority owned businesses is horrible, though.
