The Maryland Department of Planning site has a lot to offer, and I will spend a few postings discussing its content. One particularly useful part of this site is the Data Center. Some of the data here is a few years old but it’s still worth knowing about. Check out the page entitled “High Technology Industries In Maryland In 2000” which provides a number of statistics on the breakdown of the number, types, and location of high technology industries in MD—either through maps or tables. The Economic Census page also provides interesting statistics on minority owned businesses in MD, albeit fairly dated (1997). Finally, check out the Publications page. Here you’ll find full text reports on such topics as Smart Neighborhoods, Big Box Developments, Infill and Redevelopment.
