In today's fast moving world, keeping informed on the public policies, at the federal, state, and local levels, that impact your personal or work life is a daunting task. Fortunately, technology can aid in that effort and Key Policy Data was created to help you.

 

We accomplish this important goal with the help of data visualization and discovery programs we can post huge amounts of data without sacrificing usability. For instance, our state and county tax burden app can quickly show you how your state's tax burden ranks and how it has changed over time with just a few clicks of a button.


No fake news. All of our work is extensively documented and has been used by think-tanks, news media, legislators, and grass-roots activists all over the country. We encourage constructive discourse on our commenting system and/or social media and we look forward to the interaction--whether you agree or disagree with us.

 

We hope that you find the information on Key Policy Data useful and we kindly request that you share this website with your friends and family. Additionally, be sure to sign up for our mailing list to make sure you don't miss any of our analysis on the important public policy issues impacting your state.

This year’s 2018 DIY Network Ultimate Retreat is in Sapphire, North Carolina (see Google map at end of post). According to the DIY Network rules, it comes with the home and furnishings ($778,630) and $50,000 in cash for a total prize value of $828,630. Of course, the $50,000 in cash will come in handy, because if you win the 2018 DIY Network Ultimate Retreat you will need to be prepared for a hefty federal individual income tax bill and, depending on where you live, a state individual income tax bill—both of which I have estimated in this post.
