As director of the Indiana Business Research Center, Carol Rogers directs its information systems and services, overseeing the development of websites, publications, training, research projects and other services. She sits on the boards of the Council for Community and Economic Development and the Indiana Geographic Information Council, and serves as the Governor’s Census Liaison.
She works extensively with economic developers, government officials and businesses throughout Indiana and the nation, providing them with economic and demographic information for and about Indiana and its localities. These data are shared through publications produced by the IBRC research staff, web services, training, consultation and analysis.
Under her direction, the Center’s award-winning interactive web service, STATS Indiana, has become one of the most-used public data sites in the nation, along with its sister site, STATS America.
There is some life beyond data — avid reader and biker; past PTA president; lifetime member of the Girl Scouts of Indiana (an award given for her volunteer demographic work); and uses her off-time for other volunteer activities to fulfill her need to serve.
