The Long Island Index: The Clock is Ticking

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On May 17, 2011 @ 12:28 pm In Digital Media,Economy,Video | Comments Disabled

The Long Island Index [1] 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
