The Child Opportunity Index is a valuable tool for understanding the geography of opportunity for children in the 100 largest U.S. metropolitan areas. Child Opportunity Maps are rich with information, and allow users to view patterns of child opportunity by zooming in to the neighborhood level or zooming out to the regional level. Users can also examine different domains of child opportunity, or overlay the child population (by race/ethnicity) onto opportunity maps in order to see where children live in relation to child opportunity.
To illustrate these basic skills, we have created a video tutorial for the Child Opportunity Index mapping tools. This short video tutorial teaches users how to access a Child Opportunity Map, interact with the various map features, overlay the child population by race and ethnicity, and interpret your map.
