The St. Louis Equity Indicators Project uses a scoring methodology developed by the City University of New York in their Equality Indicators tool. This tool works across multiple areas and measures the disparities faced by disadvantaged groups (those most vulnerable to inequality, such as racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, or individuals living in poverty) across those domains.


The Equity Indicators Project is a regional collaboration between the City of St. Louis, Forward Through Ferguson, and United Way. The project is funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and 100 Resilient Cities. Technical assistance was provided by City University of New York's Institute for State and Local Governance.
