The American Human Development Project, commissioned by Opportunity Nation, released interactive data from The Opportunity Index. The Index reveals how states and counties perform on a set of indicators that measure access to opportunity in communities within three dimensions—jobs and local economy, education, and community health and civic life.

The Index is part of a larger campaign aimed at bringing the issues of opportunity and mobility into mainstream debate and igniting grassroots efforts to spur action by policymakers.
