The 2017 Federal Reserve System Community Development Research Conference explored the intersections between child and youth development, community development, and economic well-being, with a particular focus on factors that affect low-income kids and communities. To help communicate some of the conference's key concepts, the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis worked with Burness Communications to develop a set of six infographics that depict the important roles that early childhood development and community development play in shaping economic opportunity.
We encourage other organizations working to improve outcomes for low-income individuals and communities to use these evidence-based infographics to further their own aims. The images are available for downloading in various formats below.
The academic research citations for the studies that provide supporting evidence for the key messages depicted are available here.
