The 2000 Index of Silicon Valley tells the story of a region with slowing quantitative job growth, but qualitative gains in innova- tion, entrepreneurship and wages.

The Index reports progress in education performance following significant efforts by educators, businesses, and parents to improve the quality of education in Silicon Valley. Yet it shows wide disparity in education achievement by ethnicity, with Hispanic students lagging particularly.

While serious challenges remain in housing and transportation, recent land use decisions are consistent with the Silicon Valley 2010 goals of a more livable region. This year’s Index also shows signs of progress in regional stewardship.
