Metro Area Maps & Data

The Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity develops a wide range of data, reports and other information in the course of its research and outreach activities. This section offers maps with a variety of local characteristics (and changes over time), including tax base, school poverty and race breakdowns, jobs, population, land-use, affordable housing and voting records, for the 50 largest U.S. metropolitan areas.
