On behalf of our public and private partnership with Measure of America of the Social Science Research Council, we are excited to announce the launch of the Portrait of Los Angeles County! Please join us for an optional pre-launch lunch starting at 12:45 followed by a presentation of key findings from the Portrait of Los Angeles County. Hear perspectives from different sectors about how we can use these findings to improve well-being throughout LA County.

The Portrait of Los Angeles County examines well-being using the human development framework and index. In addition to exploring life expectancy and health data, the Portrait looks at data focused on access to knowledge (school enrollment rates and educational degree attainment rates) as well as measures related to standards of living and median earnings for full and part-time workers. The report will present Human Development Index scores for LA County places and demographic groups and explore a range of critical issues, including education, living standards, environmental justice, homelessness, inequality, and access to opportunity.

The Portrait is the result of a collaboration of 15 funders, several County departments, nonprofit organizations, and Measure of America, facilitated by SCG.
