Opportunity Index: How Opportunity Measures Up In Your Community

Monday, July 1, 2019

Most business leaders are interested in promoting economic opportunity, and the just released Opportunity Index, based on 2018 data, is a great resource for information about the opportunity available in places where your company is making grants.  The Opportunity Index blends multiple indicators -- from unemployment rate, wage levels and the availability of affordable housing, to rates of violent crime, pre-school enrollment and health insurance coverage – to create an overall score.   You can view data at the county, state and national levels.
