Opportunity Index

 In 2015, OCED began the work of documenting access to opportunity for Washtenaw County residents by developing an “Opportunity Index” – a tool used to “map” equity and opportunity using five key data sources: health, education, job access, economic vitality, and neighborhood safety and stability.

Understanding access to opportunity is essential to developing responsive policies and making corresponding investments that foster human  potential.
