MDI creates a Regional Development Snapshot Tool to support the Regional Government Reform

MDI leads a consortium that during 2017 constructs a Regional Development Snapshot Tool, which combines the most functional user-driven data production models that the state and the regions use in decision-making. The aim is to select the most important quantitative and qualitative indicators, which provide quick and up to date information about regional development in the regions. The aim is to select evidence-based indicators that are so called rapid and sensitive variables. These variables are essential in identifying the specific features of changes in the regional economy and development. The Snapshot Tool is connected to the regional reform and thus to the regional development system. The Tool will be tested in autumn 2017 when the provisional county institutions will start their operations. The study is part of the implementation of the Government Plan for Analysis, Assessment and Research for 2017.
