LBM Research & Information Management adds cost of living calculator and cost of living index to its info and data management services

Realtors, mortgage companies, banks, small businesses, economic development specialists and business leaders to benefit

HARRISBURG, Pa. (September 3, 2015) — LBM Research & Information Management LLC has added a cost of living calculator and cost of living index for Harrisburg/Carlisle to its website and information and data management services. Realtors, mortgage companies, banks, small businesses, economic development specialists and other decision makers will benefit from these new tools.

The cost of living calculator on the website of LBM Research & Information Management, http://www.lbmrim.com, will be available for the media and others to explore without logging in with a name and email address through September. After that, log-in will be required. The calculator is available on other sites for a fee. Users can compare the cost of living for professional and executive households for more than 300 U.S. Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs).

Leila P. Brown, principal, LBM Research & Information Management, has more than 20 years of community and economic development research experience regarding business retention and expansion programs. She had been collecting the Harrisburg-Carlisle MSA data for a number of years for the Dauphin County Office of Economic Development and has collected that data as an independent research assistant for the national Council for Community and Economic Research (ACCRA) for the past five years.

 

“Working as affordable housing specialist and business retention coordinator piqued my interest in this research. Now, as data collector, the information I collect enables the region to be included in the ACCRA cost of living Index published three times a year,” said Brown, who will also be publishing an economic resource guide to complement other information available in the region.

LBM also provides information management and consulting services for organizations short on time and staff.

“We provide a variety of services to help small businesses and organizations,” said Brown, who oversees data entry, list management and data conversion to popular tools such as Constant Contact. “There are many great contact management systems, but most importantly is the data input to maximize the capabilities of those tools.” Brown also provides document formatting for proposals, reports and scripts.

 

She has studied at the University of North Carolina’s Applied Research Center, Charlotte, North Carolina, and obtained certifications in Local Population Analysis, Economic Development Communications, and Strategic Analysis for Community and Economic Development. She is a background-screened, bonded and insured certified notary signing agent, providing general notary service for real estate, business, family and personal documents.

 

LBM Research & Information Management is a member of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber. Brown is available at 717-319-4843 for a free consultation. Additional information including the cost of living calculator and cost of living Index for the Harrisburg/Carlisle MSA is available at http://www.lbmrim.com.
