EFP collects and analyzes the most up-to-date data relating to topics that matter to businesses, policy makers and the community. These data form the backbone of our events, webinars, publications, and consulting projects. Some data on our website may be very recent, while some may be one or two years old. This is because some agencies and data sources have considerable lag in the issuance of their data. Generally, however, whatever data you see on our website is the latest data available.
