Webinar Release of the 2015 Assets & Opportunity Scorecard

TOMORROW, January 29, 2014 | Noon - 1 pm EST
Join CFED at noon EST tomorrow for the webinar release of the 2015 Assets & Opportunity Scorecard. Each year, the Scorecard offers the most comprehensive look available at American’s financial security today and their opportunity to create a more prosperous future. It is a powerful research and advocacy tool that helps paint the full picture of household financial insecurity in America. This year's Scorecard brings together over 130 policy and outcome measures for all 50 states and the District of Columbia to help make the case for asset-based policy reform that expands economic opportunity for all Americans.
Key highlights from this year’s Scorecard include:
Top-level analysis on the economic recovery at the household level.
New outcome measures, including the scope of income inequality and the number of disconnected youth in each state.
A comprehensive assessment of the policies states should adopt to create opportunity for their residents.
Analysis of how Scorecard data can be used to affect meaningful change in your state.
An online liquid asset poverty calculator.
As always, participation in this webinar is free, but advanced registration is required. To sign up, click here (https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1125170194367784194).

About the Scorecard
Released annually, the Scorecard explores how well residents are faring in the 50 states and the District of Columbia and assesses policies that are helping residents build and protect assets along five issue areas: Financial Assets & Income, Businesses & Jobs, Housing & Homeownership, Health Care and Education. The 2015 Scorecard assesses states across more than 130 outcome and policy measures in these five areas to determine the ability of residents to achieve financial security.
