Driftless Counties Food Environment Data

The USDA Economic Research Service just launched a site where one can easily access data that describes a county’s food environment.   There are some bugs in the system but this looks like a valuable tool: http://ers.usda.gov/foodatlas/

The link below will take you to a table of data for the Driftless Region counties that I created.  ( Ignore that the map link is broken – I can’t seem to fix it.  Scroll down and you can see how the counties in the Driftless stack up on any number of food-related indices.

    This website does not display correctly on my iphone 4 – you might want to try and fix that.

    I believe one of your adverts triggered my browser to re-size, you might want to put that on your blacklist.
    I just added this web site to my rss reader.

    Thanks, I’ve recently been looking for info about this topic for ages and yours is the best I have located so far.

      Jessica, thanks for the heads up. I just lost our site administrator (he is traveling China)and hope to bring someone else on who could handle such matters soon. Glad you found the site useful. Let me know what your specific interest is so we can hook you into more than just the rss feed!
