GIS SNAPSHOT — Volume 16 — March 14, 2019
Economic Hardship Index (EHI) scores and life expectancy estimates at birth, by census tract, in Nassau County, Florida. EHI scores and life expectancy estimates were grouped into 4 classes by using Jenks natural breaks and combined to produce a bivariate map. EHI scores range from 0 to 100, with higher scores indicating worse economic conditions. The map highlights marked differences in economic conditions and life expectancy between census tracts. The map was shared with county health department staff members in response to calls for locally relevant data to address health disparities.
