Building Regional Resilience  

Using a research-based index system, the Building Regional Resilience Hub helps communities easily identify and compare counties based on their relative resiliency and vulnerability to the country as a whole. The indexes rank all counties into four quadrants based on their relative resilience and vulnerability to the national median in four main categories: social, economic, infrastructure, and environmental.

Vulnerable Populations Footprint Tool  

The vulnerable populations footprint tool is a compact mapping and reporting platform that identifies geographic areas with high rates of poverty and low educational attainment – the two indicators demonstrated to be the primary social determinants of population health. Thresholds for target area identification are adjustable, allowing the tool to be utilized in all geographic areas where regional rates may be higher or lower than the national average.
