'Geographies of Opportunity' Study Ranks U.S. Congressional Districts

A new report looks at how each congressional district in the country fares as far as education, health and income.

The study by the group Measure of America ranks the districts based on the American Human Development Index. Researchers used congressional districts because they all include roughly the same number of people.

Sarah Burd-Sharps is co-director of Measure of America and co-author of the report called “Geographies of Opportunity."

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
