StateBook International is the first proprietary online site selection marketplace that enables economic development organizations to showcase their community, Region and State. StateBook dramatically improves the process of site selection by aggregating editorial and objective data from economic development organizations throughout the United States in one centralized, searchable location. Site Selectors and Corporations have the ability to confidentially access, search, compare, and save results on information critical to site selection decisions for each economic development organization microsite.
All StateBook users need to create a free account. This account will give you access to a Dashboard where you can change your account information.
Our data comes from government and private sources. StateBook data updates are dependent on the update schedule of the source material. Each data point on StateBook lists a source and date, just click on the “i” and the source information will display.
StateBook provides aggregated data down to the
county level. If your EDO represents a
city, the data will display for the county in which your city resides. StateBook EDO members can add their own
editorial data to their microsites to best present their specific community. StateBook
also provides geosites with data at the County and MSA level.
Each economic development organization (EDO) in the United States is offered a microsite on StateBook to share information about their region. If you don't see your organization, you may add it free of charge by scrolling to the bottom of the search results.
StateBook connects EDOs through a technology platform with dynamic features and aggregated data. Each EDO microsite has the ability to be viewed, searched and compared by site selectors and corporations. Once an EDO becomes a StateBook member, the StateBooks stats and EDO entered editorial would be viewable to site selectors.

StateBook International provides members with the maximum ability to successfully compete in a target rich environment for new jobs and new investment.
