After the Long Island Index’s 15 years of service, proving beyond doubt the importance of a regional index for Long Island, the Rauch Foundation (publisher of the Long Island Index) and Newsday announced the launch in April 2018 of nextLI, a digital community and toolbox to succeed the Long Island Index as the regional index for Long Island.
