The Opportunity Atlas - Data on Locations where Children Rise Out of Poverty

This interactive data dashboard, developed as a collaborative research project between the U.S. Census Bureau and researchers from Harvard University and Brown University, is a comprehensive Census tract-level dataset of children’s outcomes in adulthood using data from almost the entire U.S. population. In particular, the tract analysis estimates childhood outcomes in adulthood, to include earnings and incarceration rate, as they correlate to parents’ income, race, and gender. The outcomes can be traced to the poverty and incarceration rates occurring in the census tracts where the children grew up.
