The Long Island Index gathers and publishes data on the Long Island region.

The Index does not advocate specific policy. Instead, our goal is to be a catalyst for action, by engaging the community in thinking about our region and our future.
More about us


Indicators are facts that help show how a region is doing, the way the unemployment rate helps show the health of the economy.

Measuring these kinds of data helps communities to identify existing conditions, measure progress toward goals and to mobilize action to improve the region. The Long Island Index has been providing this data for ten years which allows residents, researchers, civic organizations and others to assess our change over time and evaluate our path for future action.
