Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning & Economic Development (DMPED)
Economic Intelligence Dashboard

DMPED is using economic data to drive positive change and build good government for District of Columbia residents. We focus on collecting and compiling information about our city, in particular on D.C.’s economic development priorities that create more pathways to the middle class: jobs, quality affordable housing, and community-focused development.

This site is an online version of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development’s weekly dashboard. This dashboard is also transmitted to the City Administrator, the Mayor, and other senior staff, so they can be aware of economic trends and context. It includes only data that is public, so certain indicators that DMPED uses are not included.

If you have any ideas, data, or interest in helping us grow our dashboard, email us here.

Glossary of Terms

  • A glossary term

    To add glossary terms, edit the glossary.yaml file in the _data folder.

  • Another term

    Glossary terms need a term, slug, and definition attribute. The term attribute will appear above the definition. The slug is a unique identifier for the term. It should be lowercase, with no special characters or punctuation, and any spaces replaced with a dash.

  • Yet another term

    Want to link to a specific glossary term in your text, like this one here? You will need to edit your markdown like so:

    [this one here](#glossary){:define="yet-another-term"}

    Just place the text you want linked in the brackets and the correct slug within the quotes.
