  • Agriculture and Food
  • Banking, Finance, and Insurance
  • Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement
  • Education
  • Energy Resources and Industries
  • Government and Politics
  • Health and Vital Statistics
  • Housing and Construction

The powerful functionality of the Data Planet platform allows users to get the data they need fast:  Users can manipulate datasets, compare multiple indicators and multiple sources, chart trends over time, and map data without requiring additional software programs.  Data Planet has a built in calculator, the ability to view data many different ways, and one quick click (What Happened Here feature) gives you context to understand what a spike or drop in data means. Data Planet makes it fun and easy to get what you need and use it in Excel, as a map, graph, chart, and much more…with just a few clicks!
