Data Bank

The Data Bank is the backbone of the services that BBER provides. BBER has developed and maintains a large database of New Mexico data. BBER is highly knowledgeable in identifying accurate data, as well as processing, formatting and maintaining large data sets. This ability to curate data is unlike any other data service in New Mexico. BBER has the ability to layer many types of data over each other in order to analyze and forecast trends and relationships between economic factors based on location. This data is collected and stored electronically through the Data Bank which also serves as an agency for New Mexico in the U.S. Census Bureau’s State Data Center program.

Data Bank Library:  The Data Bank houses a reference library collection.

New information is received and disseminated exclusively in digital formats.
