The following report assesses the “State of Opportunity” in Massachusetts. An “opportunity mapping” analysis was commissioned and funded by the Massachusetts Legal Services Programs. Representatives of the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute and the Legal Aid programs in Massachusetts worked with The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race & Ethnicity at The Ohio State University to conduct the analysis. Opportunity mapping analyzes the distribution of opportunity in metropolitan areas utilizing state‐of‐the‐art Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and extensive data sets. The Kirwan Institute has become a national leader in conducting opportunity mapping to support social and racial justice initiatives.
