Vermont ranks first in ‘Opportunity Index’
From Vermont Business Magazine:
Opportunity Nation released today the 2013 Opportunity Index, the nation’s most comprehensive measure of economic, educational and civic factors that influence the upward mobility of Americans. While the data shows modest growth – 2.6 percent – in Opportunity Scores nationwide between 2011-2013, the zip code where a person is born still largely determines his or her chances of success. In 2013, Vermont ranked #1 out of all 50 states and Washington, DC; Nevada ranks last for the third year in a row. Vermont had the highest score in both the Education and Community categories.
