The NC Department of Commerce has selected 13 “Opportunity Zones” based on Census Tracts in Wake County. In response, Long Range Planning has created a “Targeted Application” focusing on some of the socioeconomic characteristics within these Zones and around Wake County.

Referencing the Community Vulnerability and Economic Health Indexes, the combined Social Equity ranking demonstrates the overall characteristics of these communities. This application can be used through accessing a website and is created to allow additional interaction by the user.
