The Duluth Prosperity Index is a way of measuring the overall financial health of people in Duluth using a wide variety of measures. This tool was developed with the assistance of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. The Prosperity Agenda team concentrated on five specific areas, which intrinsically complement each other and developed an index as a measurement tool to track progress:

Income/Poverty – Housing – Workforce – Education – Business Climate
