Opportunity Index Release
The latest Opportunity Index debuts on June 13!Join us for an exclusive look at the new findings
The Opportunity Index is an annual multidimensional snapshot of opportunity at the state and county levels. It provides data on all 50 states and the District of Columbia and 2,100 counties, covering 97 percent of the population. Each year we rank every state and grade counties on 20 indicators in four dimensions: the economy, education, health, and community life.
This new release includes disaggregated national data by race/ethnicity, which allows deeper examination of racial, ethnic and gender equity in opportunity.
