This social data section is all about measuring people in less mainstream ways. For instance, border entry statistics from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics gives a unique snapshot of the state economy as well as recording political and weather events that impede the movement of people. National Park visitation statistics can give insight into how many tourists are visiting the state. Tourism is an important industry in many rural areas of New Mexico and the quickly released data can help make predictions of gross receipt collections and other economic measures. More unconventional sources coming soon!
