America’s demography is changing—and the nation’s economic fate will hinge on how we respond to these changes. To asses these changes, PolicyLink has released its National Equity Atlas for a comparison of metros on several key indicators.
Regions and states are equitable when all residents—regardless of their race/ethnicity, nativity, neighborhood of residence, or other characteristics—are fully able to participate in the community’s economic vitality, contribute to its readiness for the future, and connect to its assets and resources. The Equity Atlas takes a closer look at how equity plays a role in North Carolina's metros, including communities in the Piedmont Triad.
