Launching Urban’s Financial Health and Wealth Dashboard: Leveraging Local Data to Improve Financial Well-Being

The Urban Institute’s Financial Health and Wealth Dashboard provides new wealth and assets data to illustrate the financial health of residents at the local level across the United States. This tool helps local leaders answer critical questions about residents’ management of daily finances, resilience to economic shocks, and opportunities for upward mobility. 

Please join the Urban Institute to explore how this dashboard can help leaders target supports to address racial and ethnic disparities in their communities and improve the financial lives of residents.
