Opportunity Nation announces its updated Opportunity Index site

"Your Zip Code should not determine your chances of success," says Opportunity Nation in announcing its updated Opportunity Index site. Opportunity Nation reports that its national opportunity scores increased 2.6 percent since the index was first launched. These include: improvements in 26 states and Washington, D.C.; declines in unemployment rates but increases in poverty rates; internet-access improvements in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.; and a decrease in violent crime in 44 states. 11/13/2013
