Equity Counts: Tracking Opportunity Youth Outcomes


For the past year, Equal Measure has partnered with the Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions on the Equity Counts initiative, with the goal of developing a way to track opportunity youth outcomes across communities. Equal Measure worked with these communities to develop community-wide indicators of opportunity youth success and progress, and to disaggregate these measures by key demographic factors such as race/ethnicity, gender, and age.

Through a new report, Equal Measure discusses the importance of creating common measures for tracking opportunity youth outcomes, describes the greatest challenges associated with these efforts, and introduces a set of Common Measures that utilizes publicly available data to capture community-wide progress in connecting 16- to 24-year-olds to high school, postsecondary education, and the workforce.
