Socioeconomic Status Vulnerability

| 0

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) Social Vulnerability Index (SVI), or CDC/ATSDR SVI, is a database that helps emergency response planners and public health officials identify, map, and plan support for communities that will most likely need support before, during, and after a public health emergency.
CDC/ATSDR and the HHS Office of Minority Health developed the Minority Health Social Vulnerability Index (Minority Health SVI) to enhance existing resources to support the identification of racial and ethnic minority communities at the greatest risk for disproportionate impact and adverse outcomes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Minority Health SVI is an extension of the CDC/ATSDR SVI that includes additional variables for race, ethnicity, language, medical vulnerability, and health care infrastructure. The Minority Health SVI is grouped into six themes: Socioeconomic Status, Household Composition and Disability, Minority Status and Language, Housing Type and Transportation, Health Care Infrastructure, and Medical Vulnerability. Each theme has a percentile ranking represented as a value between 0 (least vulnerable) and 1 (most vulnerable). An Overall Percentile Ranking combines these themes.

Area Deprivation Index by Census Block Group

| 0

The 2019 Area Deprivation Index is now available! The ADI map displays rankings of neighborhoods by socioeconomic status disadvantage in a region of interest (e.g. at the state or national level). It includes factors for the theoretical domains of income, education, employment, and housing quality. It can be used to inform health delivery and policy, especially for the most disadvantaged neighborhood groups. The 2019 ADI was constructed using the 2015-2019 5-year estimates from the US Census’ American Community Survey.

Change in Area Deprivation Index Scores (2015 to 2019) by Census Block Group

| 0

This map layer displays the change (+/-) in Area Deprivation Index (ADI) scores between the 2015 and 2019 datasets. The ADI is a rankings of neighborhoods by socioeconomic status disadvantage in a region of interest (e.g. at the state or national level). It includes factors for the theoretical domains of income, education, employment, and housing quality. It can be used to inform health delivery and policy, especially for the most disadvantaged neighborhood groups. The 2015 ADI (v2.0) was constructed using the 2011-2015 5-year estimates from the US Census’ American Community Survey (ACS); the 2019 ADI uses 2015-2019 5-year estimates from the ACS.

Population in Poverty, Disparity Index Score

| 0

Layer displays information about racial disparity of poverty using data from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey (ACS). The Index of Disparity (ID) is used to show the magnitude of variation in indicator percentages across population groups. In this case, the index measures the difference in the percentage of populations of different racial and ethnic groups living below the poverty level.

Households Receiving SNAP Benefits, Disparity Index Score

| 0

Layer displays information about racial disparity of poverty using data from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey (ACS). The Index of Disparity (ID) is used to show the magnitude of variation in indicator percentages across population groups. In this case, the index measures the difference in the percentage of the households receiving SNAP benefits across four racial and ethnic groups.

Educational Attainment, Disparity Index Score

| 0

Layer displays information about racial disparity of educational attainment using data from the 2009-2013 American Community Survey (ACS). The Index of Disparity (ID) is used to show the magnitude of variation in indicator percentages across population groups. In this case, the index measures the difference in the percentage of the population with less than a high school diploma across four racial and ethnic groups.
