CDC Social Vulnerability Index (CDCSVI)

The Centers for Disease Control Social Vulnerability Index shows which communities are especially at risk during public health emergencies because of factors like socioeconomic status, household composition, racial composition of neighborhoods, or housing type and transportation. The CDC SVI uses 15 U.S. census variables to identify communities that may need support before, during, or after disasters. Learn more here.

The condition is the overall ranking of four social theme rankings where lower values indicate high vulnerability and high values indicate low vulnerability.

Quintiles for this condition were determined for all the Census tracts in King County. Quintile 1 is the most vulnerable residents, Quintile 5 is the least vulnerable residents.

Data is released every 2 years following the American Community Survey release in December of the year following the Survey. The most recent data for 2018 was downloaded from the ATSDR website.
