Community Well-Being Data
A new interactive information tool, the Nebraska Community Opportunity Map, is now live to the public, ensuring that policymakers and other stakeholders will have centralized, easy-to-navigate access to data that’s vital to their work. Specifically, this free resource is designed to increase access to information about communities, especially data relevant to the well-being of Nebraska’s children and families. The ultimate goal is to give policymakers and other stakeholders another tool for making data-informed decisions about resource allocation, service delivery, emergency planning, city planning, and other vital functions.
