Child Opportunity Index 2.0

The Institute for Child, Youth and Family Policy at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management developed and launched this database, which is an updated index of 29 neighborhood-level indicators pointing to opportunities for child well-being in about 72,000 neighborhoods. The indicators reflect three data components: education, health and environment, and social and economic domains. The education component reflects access to quality early childhood education, quality of elementary and secondary schools, and educational supports. The health and environment domain covers access to healthy food and green space as well as exposure to industrial pollutants. The social and economic data captures indicators that measure access to employment and family economic resources.
