Social Vulnerability Level, as of 2018

Social vulnerability refers to populations that are vulnerable to significant life disruption and health problems as a result of natural disasters, human-made disasters, climate change, and extreme weather. Darker colors on this map indicate census tracts where populations need more support and recovery assistance in the event of a disaster or extreme weather event. The four categories of vulnerability include socioeconomic status, household composition and disability, minority status and language, and housing and transportation.
