Using Passport

Registering for an account
On the Passport home page you can register for an account.  Setting up your own Passport account will allow you to save your work to a private work space within the database so that you can come back to results you generated from previous sessions.  Please use your St. Olaf e-mail address when registering.

Researching an Industry
The easiest way to begin is to select the "Industries" link at the top of the initial Passport screen and select the industry you are researching.  You will be presented with the latest news about this industry along with some controls at the top of the screen to navigate through what is available.  These controls will allow you to isolate to particular product categories and find information about growth and prospects for the industry.  You can also look at the top companies in a particular industry and use the last panel to present the data visually.

Whenever Passport presents you with raw data you can download that data to a spreadsheet or a pdf file, or you can save it to your work space.  Look for the icons in the upper right hand corner of pages where this is possible.

Countries and Consumers
This section of the database allows you to mine data regarding population characteristics for particular geographical areas.  You can explore consumer trends, business climates, as well as incomes and expenditures.

Dashboards allow you to visualize data through graphs, charts, and maps.
