Measuring Distress

A Tool for Economic Development

A fast simple way to calculate whether a county, region or neighborhood may meet grant thresholds for unemployment and income. Just select county or tract and the tool will create regions or neighborhoods based on your choices.

Note: The Measuring Distress tool does not provide historical Per Capita Money Income data from the American Community Survey (ACS). Therefore, the data will not change to whichever reference year the user has selected.
