Mapping Chronic Disease Risk Factors With ArcGIS Online in Support of COVID-19 Response in Florida


This map displays the rate of diabetes hospitalizations per 10,000 people at the zip code level for the entire State of Florida. There are 4 classes: less than or equal to 728, less than or equal to 1,263, less than or equal to 2,462, and less than or equal to 6,939. There is also a suppressed category, for zip codes with <5 health events or <20 residents. The map shows county boundaries and a scale bar for reference.

Static display of spatial variability in diabetes, which may increase the risk of severe illness from COVID-19, by Florida zip code and county. In the corresponding interactive map (https://arcg.is/1D0Lz4), 16 measures of chronic disease–related morbidity, mortality, and population health were aggregated to 5-year rates and stratified by age. The map application is used by local county health departments to inform COVID-19 response and identify communities at increased risk of COVID-19. Data on zip codes with <5 health events or <20 residents were suppressed.
