Launching Urban’s Financial Well-Being Data Hub: A New Approach to Improving Financial Security and Advancing Equity

The Urban Institute is launching the Financial Well-Being Data Hub to harness the potential of consumer data to improve financial security and advance equity. Through the Data Hub, we will bring together disparate data sources to create a new data asset that provides a holistic understanding of people’s financial well-being. By considering data from public and proprietary sources, as well as the financial experiences of individuals and families, Urban will uncover unique insights that will inform evidence-based solutions that stakeholders across the financial well-being ecosystem can use to improve financial well-being and advance equity. 

Please join the Urban Institute and nationally recognized experts for a conversation about how this new initiative will advance actionable solutions to improve financial well-being.
