The Florida Gap Map

The Nation’s First Root Cause Analysis Tool Aimed at Supporting Florida Leaders in Securing the Path to Prosperity in Every Florida Zip Code

By harnessing the power of the Florida Gap Map, Florida’s business leaders, non-profit administrators, and policymakers will be able to tailor efforts to ensure specific resources are deployed to match the unique barriers to opportunity present in each of Florida’s 983 zip codes. 

In addition to shining a light on concentrations of childhood poverty at the zip code level and third-grade reading proficiency at the school level, this data visualization and analysis tool helps users identify the root cause challenges Florida’s children and families face that ultimately impact Florida’s workplace and economy. 

Explore the Florida Gap Map below to learn more about the opportunities that exist to secure the path to prosperity in your neighborhood.
 Note: The Map is best viewed on a desktop.
