Data Maps the Impact of Where a Child Grows Up

0 899

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Opportunity Atlas tracks the outcomes of 20 million Americans from childhood to their mid-30s in all 70,000 census tracts with the ability to analyze findings by race, gender, and income. In the past, we could measure neighborhood wealth and poverty at a given moment, but never before could we see how early childhood experiences can influence income into adulthood.

See where and for whom opportunity has been missing, and learn how this data can help develop local solutions to help more children rise out of poverty.
