This data layer depicts the 2016 Social Vulnerability Index (SVI). It was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The SVI provides an indication of which communities are most likely to need assistance after a natural disaster or harmful, human-caused event. It takes factors such as income, access to vehicles, housing arrangements, and more into consideration. It is summarized at the county level. The SVI may assist planners and project managers in identifying vulnerable communities. End users may prioritize highly vulnerable communities in grant programs and capacity-building projects.
