The Long Island Index is a project that gathers and publishes data on the Long Island region. The Index does not advocate specific policies. Instead, our goal is to be a catalyst for action, by engaging the community in thinking about our region and its future. Specifically, the Index seeks to:
-Measure where we are and show trends over time
-Encourage regional thinking
-Compare our situation with other similar regions
-Increase awareness of issues and an understanding of their interrelatedness
-Inspire Long Islanders to work together in new ways to achieve shared goals

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
