Opportunity Index of the USA

Hank Knaack

This interactive map measured and scored all 50 states plus Washington DC on a scale of 0-100 each year, using 16 indicators (economic, academic, civic - not just business). Ideally, this gives "policymakers and leaders a useful tool to identify areas for improvement and to gauge progress over time." The site is built not only to educate but also to empower (much like GOOD) to help level the playing field in our communities and get involved with the organizations that do just that.

Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    This is incredible that all this information is on this site. Would love to see this map on a global scale.

      Yes I agree! The level of detail is impressive. And the intent behind it is even better!
