The Distressed Communities Index are based on a geography’s combined performance on the seven well-being metrics (No High School Degree, Housing vacancy, Adults not working, Poverty, Median income, Change in employment, Change in business establishments). The higher the index, the greater the distress. The indexes range from 0 to 100, moving from dark green in the most prosperous zip codes to dark red in the most distressed ones.
