|Map of the American Human Development Index|
On June 19th, the Social Science Research Council released the 2013-2014 Measure of America Report, a publication which aims to measure and compare quality of life across America by use of the American Human Development Index (HDI). Derived from the United Nations Human Development Index, this composite measure combines health, education, and income indicators to provide a portrait of well-being (defined as a long and healthy life, access to knowledge, and a decent standard of living). The MOA interactive map allows for visualization of the American HDI as well as a number of other health, education, and economic indicators at the state and county level. Check out the data here.
