Taking a Look at Ourselves
New York based writer and researcher Kristen Lewis is co-director of the American Human Development Project, a non-partisan, non-profit initiative to apply a well established international approach to measuring human well-being in the US. The human development index is a fact-based tool that examines health, education and income and compares the data across geographic, ethnic and gender lines within the US and across the globe. The results will surprise you and should steer a national debate. The report includes practical recommendations.
Many of the national findings are mirrored locally in Multnomah County.
