The Web site,, is offered as a service of the ACU College of Business Administration, and it consolidates publicly available economic information, creating a one-stop shop, said Dr. Monty Lynn, professor of management at ACU.

The Web site also provides economic data and specialized economic analysis for the West Central Texas region. The region consists of Brown, Callahan, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Fisher, Haskell, Jones, Kent, Knox, Mitchell, Nolan, Runnels, Scurry, Shackelford, Stonewall, Stephens, Taylor and Throckmorton counties. The site also includes information on a variety of organizations that provide business development assistance.

The CBER site was supported by a grant from the Development Corporation of Abilene and the West Central Texas Workforce Development Board. ACU's COBA also has been working in cooperation with the Texas Midwest Community Network to develop its county research.

"The greatest benefit is the convenience and accessibility of the information that could be a benefit to lots of different people," said Nancy Smith, community relations coordinator for the West Central Texas Workforce Development Board.

According to the site, "the ACU CBER promotes healthy economies and communities in West Central Texas by providing information about the economy and business services."
