Economics: National Ocean Watch (ENOW) contains annual time-series data for 448 coastal counties, 30 coastal states, and the nation. Data is derived from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Bureau of Economic Analysis for 2005 – 2009. Four economic indicators are provided: establishments, employment, wages, and gross domestic product. Users can discover which sectors are the largest in various parts of the county, which sectors are growing and declining, and which account for the most jobs, wages, and gross domestic product. They can view up to four counties, states, or regions to compare trends or the makeup of their ocean and Great Lakes economies. The ENOW Explorer’s simple interface makes it easy for users to interact with and view economic data and trends, and it provides the highest level of interaction with ENOW data short of downloading the full data set.
