We are excited to announce the launch of our new report, A Portrait of New York City 2018: Well-Being in the Five Boroughs and the Greater Metro Area, an in-depth look at how residents are faring in three fundamental areas of life: health, access to knowledge, and standard of living. The report presents Human Development Index scores for New York City and metro area neighborhoods and demographic groups and explores a range of critical issues, including environmental justice, residential segregation, affordable housing, early-childhood care and education, transportation equity, the social determinants of health, and access to opportunity.
Please join us at LMHQ on Thursday, June 21, 2018, 9–11am to discuss the report findings and to hear perspectives from our panel of NYC leaders and experts about how we can use the new data and analysis to improve well-being throughout New York City and across the greater metro area.
