Joint Venture Publications

The 2001 Index of Silicon Valley tells the story of a region where prosperity for many has brought strain for all. The Index also shows signs of an economic slowdown. Indicators show that progress is being made in some areas: transit ridership, reading scores, philanthropic giving, health. Yet systemic problems have worsened: jobs growing faster than housing, rising housing costs, freeway congestion, widening income and educational divides.
