The Metropolitan Area Planning Council releases preliminary findings on Metro Boston’s State of Equity at a Council meeting
The State of Equity is the first in MAPC’s Regional Indicators program, which establishes a baseline for our equity-related indicators and will track the region’s progress towards the MetroFuture goals. The regional indicators website is the repository of all the data behind the report presented in an accessible, interactive format. A report identifying key policy and programmatic recommendations to “bend the trends” towards greater regional equity will be released later in 2011, and MAPC is reaching out to a wide variety of stakeholders to translate data findings into policy. The project was mentioned in PolicyLink’s “Prosperity 2050: Is Equity the Superior Growth Model?” report with the Center for American Progress.
