The Opportunity Index is designed to provide a snapshot of what opportunity looks like at the state and county levels. The Index focuses on the conditions present in different communities and is designed to help local communities connect economic, academic, civic and other factors that support increased opportunity and economic mobility. More than 2,600 counties are graded A-F, giving policy makers and leaders a useful tool to identify areas of improvement and to gauge progress over time. All 50 states are also ranked and Iowa ranked 8 of 50. Go to Opportunity Nation to find out how your county rates.
