    Developing Metrics to Measure Mobility from Poverty

    The US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty, which completed its work in spring 2018, gathered insights from research, practice, and people who have experienced poverty to better understand what it would take to dramatically increase mobility from poverty in the US. The Partnership advanced a comprehensive definition of mobility from poverty that included not only economic success but power, autonomy, and being valued in one’s community. Now, the Urban Institute, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is working to translate this broad definition into actionable metrics. 

    Please join us for a one-hour, interactive webinar hosted for local government leaders working to advance mobility from poverty. Counties are deeply invested in local residents’ economic stability and prosperity, and county leaders are engaging in innovative cross-sector efforts to systematically address obstacles to upward mobility and the expansion of economic opportunities for all residents. NACo and the Urban Institute will co-host this webinar to better understand how to reliably measure mobility from poverty and help local leaders better assess progress in their communities. This webinar will bring together stakeholders to provide feedback on a preliminary set of mobility metrics and a prototype data dashboard and offer insights on what would make these tools most useful for you, your county, and your partners in support of efforts to increase mobility from poverty.

    Participants’ contributions will be instrumental to ensuring the final metrics are both rigorous and actionable.
