Defining and Measuring Opportunity
When people have access to the essential foundations of opportunity, including affordable housing, jobs, good schools and transit, then everyone has a chance to succeed – no matter where they’re starting from.
Opportunity360 measures five foundational criteria shown to have the greatest impact on how we live. The information provided by each neighborhood-level report can help us all better understand how to ensure communities are inclusive, equitable and thriving.
