"Our mission is to provide easy-to-use, yet methodologically sound tools for understanding well being and opportunity in America and to simulate fact-based dialogue about issues we all care about: health, education and income. "

Seth Dixon's insight:

Usually we think about levels of development at the national scale and compare 1 country to another.  However, there is great unevenness in development markers within a country and this mapping tool helps us visualize those uneven patterns.

Love how this dissaggregates the data to individual states. What are the states with the highest HDI and why?

A wonderful tool to explore and play around with demography, income, etc. across the U.S.  It would be great if you could dial in on only coastal counties to compare coastal vs. inland regions of the U.S.
