Abstract

This is the Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) [1]. This is often used by the emergency response community to anticipate areas where social support systems are weaker, and residents may be more likely to need help. A map viewer for the national database can be found here [2].

November 2023 updates: at the time of Hurricane Harvey, the latest SVI was based on 2014 census data. The CDC SVI website and feature services have since changed. See the current (updated) links for more details.

Subsets of CDC's 2014 SVI for the Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma hydrologic study areas can be downloaded from the contents list below.
