Opportunity Atlas
#1
Thumbs Up 
I just learned about a really interesting map that was released last week by the Census Bureau about social mobility. You can explore it here: https://opportunityatlas.org/

The Census Bureau developed the map with Opportunity Insights, which is housed at Harvard University and launched last week. Their mission "is to develop scalable policy solutions that will empower families throughout the United States to rise out of poverty and achieve better life outcomes." They have some really interesting research and provide materials from a Stanford University course (Using Big Data to Solve Economic and Social Problems).


Of course I thought of all my buds at RIPL and wanted to share this info with you!
