MAPS IN THE NEWS:
This interactive mapping tool from the Economic Innovation Group allows users to identify distressed communities, as defined by housing vacancies, poverty rates, number of prime-age adults not working, and lack of high school completion, among other factors. The good news: 62% more Americans live in prosperous communities than distressed communities. The bad news: distressed communities are falling further behind the rest of the country. eig.org/2017-dci-map-national-zip-code-map
