Common Good Forecaster

One of United Way Worldwide's 10-year goals is to cut in half, by 2018, the number of students who drop out of high school. United Way Worldwide created a tool called the "Common Good Forecaster" to help community members see the impact education has on areas such as life expectancy, low birth weight, murder and obesity.

Follow the link below to see how Nebraska compares to the rest of the United States and use the forecaster to see how key economic and social conditions would change if we accomplish our goal.
