About the Project
- The (LA)DAT project is designed to be an open access resource for data analytics and forecasting of economic variables in north Louisiana, the state of Louisiana, and the Ark-La-Tex region. The expansion of the regional northern part of Louisiana, as well as the larger region, cannot occur without a clear understanding of the economic landscape and the opportunities that the state provides. (LA)DAT is intended to be an open portal for policy makers, business leaders, non-profits, non-governmental organizations, and academics to come together and learn more about this resource rich state through data science.
- The ongoing website is constructed and maintained by the combined efforts of faculty, undergraduate and graduate students.
- It is intended to also serve as a teaching tool to highlight the awesome power of data science to better understand the world we live in.
