What are Vulnerability Thresholds?

The vulnerability population footprint tool provides the ability to change the indicator thresholds to locate vulnerable populations. This may be particularly useful in rural or other less densely populated areas. In rural areas you may want to move the threshold slider to the left, reducing the percentage of those in poverty or with no high school diploma to identify those most at risk. It can also assist you in locating the most vulnerable in a densely populated area by increasing the percent population threshold.
