RPA is working with the Rauch Foundation and key stakeholders on Long
Island to produce an index that will measure Long Island's quality of
life and help achieve a consensus on problems and solutions among the
Island's leaders and citizens. RPA's primary role is to produce
research and analysis that will help articulate the issues agenda. As
an initial product, RPA has produced a Long Island Profile that
summarizes demographic, economic and environmental facts and trends.
RPA is also providing statistical and issues analysis to support a
series of quality of life polls and serves on the project's Advisory
and Technical committees.
