Exploring New Neighborhood Maps Added to the Atlas

On October 24, we released new interactive neighborhood-level mapping for four indicators on the Equity Atlas: people of color, race/ethnicity, unemployment, and disconnected youth. While Atlas users have always been able to see data for their city, region, or state as a whole, now users will be able to see how selected indicators vary by neighborhood. These new maps allow you to visualize the geography of opportunity by race/ethnicity across neighborhoods within your community and can help inform targeted hiring and workforce development initiatives as well as infrastructure investments. This 30-minute webinar explores the new mapping breakdowns, how to create your own custom maps, and how you can use them to advance equitable growth strategies.
