View Connecticut's "Opportunity Picture," from The Opportunity Index, a tool designed to provide a snapshot of what opportunity looks like at the state and county levels. Information includes our state ranking and report card by county and areas for improvement.
The Opportunity Index focuses on the conditions present in different communities and is designed to connect economic, academic, civic and other factors together to help identify concrete solutions to lagging conditions for opportunity and economic mobility. From preschool enrollment to income inequality, from volunteerism to access to healthy food, expanding opportunity depends on the intersection of multiple factors.
Developed by Measure of America and Opportunity Nation, the Index gives policymakers and community leaders a powerful tool to advance opportunity-related issues and work, advocate for positive change and track progress over time.
