A Portrait of California Launching Soon

Humantific has partnered with authors Sarah Burd-Sharps and Kristen Lewis once again to produce the next chapter in the Measure of America Series: A Portrait of California. This is the first special report follow-up to The Measure of America: American Human Development Report 2010–2011, published by NYU Press.

This report ranks California’s major racial and ethnic groups, women and men, 233 neighborhood and county groups defined by the Census Bureau, and the state’s major metro areas in terms of well-being and access to opportunity. The report also presents the “Five Californias” to represent the starkly different realities that coexist in the state today.

Three launch events are scheduled across the state. Registration is open for a limited time:

Tuesday, May 17 – Sacramento

Wednesday, May 18 – Los Angeles

Friday, May 20 – San Francisco
