Opportunity Insights supports policymakers, practitioners, and communities to use our research and data to develop evidence-based solutions for improved economic mobility.
A central part of Opportunity Insights’ mission is to train the next generation of researchers and policy leaders on methods to study and improve economic opportunity and related social problems.
Based at Harvard University, our team of researchers and policy analysts work together to analyze new data and create a platform for local stakeholders to make more informed decisions.
Opportunity Insights (OI) recently sent its fall 2023 digital newsletter where you can read about our latest research developments and learn how our evidence is shaping policy and practice.
This issue includes stories about 1) how addressing socioeconomic division can benefit American society, 2) new data that shows the highest SAT/ACT scores are strongly associated with students from wealthier households, 3) how housing mobility evidence continues to inform federal investments, 4) OI’s 2023 Conference on Mobility, as well as several other resources highlighting how OI’s research is informing mobility policy and programs.
