The Area Deprivation Index is comprised of 17 indicators of socioeconomic status and identifies vulnerable populations with a higher risk of health outcomes such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, increased hospitalizations, and higher mortality rates. The 17 indicators include measures of education, income, poverty, employment, and housing stock. A higher index indicates higher deprivation. The map shows national rankings by quintile of the census block groups in Our Community. Dark red areas are the top 20% for deprivation nationally. The bar chart shows details of the indicators included in the index.
