“The OI Economic Tracker will provide government leaders, policymakers, non-profits, and the public with the tools they need to tackle an economic crisis,” says economist Raj Chetty, Director of Opportunity Insights. “Rather than waiting weeks to see where the economy is falling and playing catch-up, the new data assembled in this tool offer the capacity to spot economic problems as they emerge and to consider a more targeted policy response.”

Womply’s software and API solutions are powered by billions of data points, including transaction data for millions of U.S. small businesses. For years, Womply has been tracking economic activity on Main Street and sharing analysis of consumer spending patterns as a public service. Amid the pandemic, Womply’s COVID-19 Data Dashboard has become one of the most widely cited sources of information about the outbreak’s economic impact on American small businesses.
