Social Capital Atlas

Migration Patterns

Using social media data from 21 billion friendships on Facebook, the Social Capital Atlas tool measures the strength of relationships and communities. This concept, known as social capital, plays an important role in community-level outcomes — including a child’s chances of rising out of poverty. The tool measures community cohesiveness, economic connectedness and civic engagement. Data is available at the county, zip code, college and high school levels.
