Opportunity Nation released a half-decade view of Opportunity in America.
The 2015 Opportunity Index shows that overall while opportunity is up nationwide by 9 percent since 2011, the nation’s ongoing economic recovery is uneven, leaving millions behind.
- There are higher rates of poverty and income inequality and lower median family incomes in 2015 than there were five years ago.
- There are 5.5 million disconnected young adults in 2015, a slight decrease since 2011 but still above pre-recession levels.
- Zip codes matter.
