Equity is more than the right thing to do—it is an absolute economic imperative. The National Equity Atlas is a first-of-its-kind data and policy tool for the community leaders and policymakers who are working to build a new economy that is equitable, resilient, and prosperous.

About the Atlas

    The right data can drive policy change—but data describing the state of equity in cities, regions, and states is difficult to access. The Atlas fills this need.
