The Child Opportunity Index in 25 metro areas

Published: 02.23.2015 Updated: 11.23.2019

The Child Opportunity Index (COI) includes a diverse array of tools to view, interpret and understand the geography of opportunity for children in the 100 largest U.S. metropolitan areas. Users can view and manipulate maps, bar graphs, and rankings tables to understand not only the presence of opportunity in neighborhoods, but also the inequities in where children of varying racial/ethnic groups live in relation to opportunity. 

To complement these tools, now presents 1-page profiles of 25 U.S. metropolitan areas using the full array COI maps, graphs and data to provide a brief snapshot of opportunity for each metro, condensed into a single page.
