About us

The Westchester Index is an interactive website with local data designed to give a comprehensive portrait of our community, sponsored by the Westchester Community Foundation and developed by the Center for Governmental Research. The Index is aimed at helping community members and leaders better understand racial and ethnic disparities in various measures of well-being, so that we can work together to direct funding and resources for greater impact and develop solutions tailored to Westchester.
