As a member of the Opportunity Nation coalition, we’re pleased to share the new Opportunity Index website that debuts today. The Index measures 16 indicators in over 3,000 counties nationwide and illustrates how well our nation is living up to its promise of the American Dream. On the interactive site, you can:
- Visualize opportunity scores nationwide;
- Compare states on their inequality rates, access to internet, preschool enrollment and more;
- Find organizations working to expand opportunity in your zip code;
- See where opportunities in America are most plentiful and
- Learn which communities offer their residents the best chances to succeed in life.
Massachusetts ranks seventh among states; where does your state rank?
