Abstract

This is the Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) [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]. Documentation is available here [3] which is also included for download below.

Subsets of the national coverage for the Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma hydrologic study areas can be downloaded below.
