Vulnerable Population Footprint

You can define areas of concern in your community using the Vulnerable Population Footprint tool. This data visualization tool overlays poverty rate and educational attainment, two key drivers of poor health outcomes, to identify where health disparities may exist in your community. 

The Vulnerable Population Footprint data is housed in CHNA. Once there, input an address, zip code, city name or, if you are using a location enabled device, simply zoom to your location.

After the map of your community has been generated, you can change the footprint definition to increase or decrease target areas. Under the Map Layers box, click on Footprint Definition. Once there, you can slide the indicators back and forth to change the percentages.
