The Opportunity Atlas

Opportunity Insights – Harvard University

Migration Patterns

The Opportunity Atlas tool answers the question: which neighborhoods in America offer children the best chance to rise out of poverty? Using anonymous data that follows 20 million Americans from childhood to their mid-30s, The Opportunity Atlas traces the roots of today’s wealth back to the neighborhoods where people grew up. This tool identifies where and who is missing out on opportunity. It can inspire local solutions to help more children rise out of poverty.
