The Ohio Opportunity Index helps us understand where we need to target resources aimed at improving conditions for Ohioans who are the most vulnerable. This map shows us opportunity level from very high to very low measuring seven factors that impact health and well-being. The higher the level in the index, the better the opportunities to thrive.
These maps can be used by state agencies, researchers, community and philanthropic groups, non-profit organizations, and others to help guide the delivery of crucial services. As you can see, this map is eerily similar to the 1939 redlining map of Cleveland.
