Title: NOAA Fisheries Community Social Vulnerability Indicators (CSVIs)
Short Name: CSVIs
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2018
Revision Date: 2020-09

Abstract:

The NOAA Fisheries Community Social Vulnerability Indicators (CSVIs) data series from 2009 to 2018 is comprised of a suite of indicators that describe and evaluate a coastal community’s ability to respond to changing social, economic and environmental conditions. The CSVIs are a valuable educational tool for policy makers, fishery management practitioners, stakeholders and the public. The 14 indices measure facets of commercial and recreational fishing dependence, social and gentrification pressure vulnerability and climate change vulnerability. The indices enable the comparison of these conditions for over 4,600 coastal communities in 23 states. The indicators illustrate geographic and temporal variation in these conditions. The social indicators were developed with multiple sources of data. Data are primarily drawn from the United States Census Bureau’s American Community Survey 5-year estimates and NOAA Fisheries. The social and gentrification pressure vulnerability indices were calculated with U.S. Census American Community Survey (ACS) five year rolling average estimate data from 2005-2009 to 2014-2018. The commercial fisheries indicators were developed using NOAA Fisheries landings data from 2009 to 2018. The recreational fisheries indicators were developed from 2009 to 2018 with NOAA fisheries and/or state (Texas, Louisiana, California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska) data unique to each region. The social and gentrification pressure vulnerability indices data series were paired with commercial and recreational fisheries indicators from the final year in each data series. For example, the 2005 to 2009 social indicator data series are paired with 2009 fisheries indicators. The sea level rise risk indicator was developed in 2015 for all coastal states except Alaska due to the unavailability of data. The storm surge risk indicator was developed in 2015 for Gulf Coast and Eastern U.S. communities due to hurricane risk. Both sea level rise risk and storm surge risk indicators were introduced in 2015 and paired with 2011 to 2015 social indicator data series and 2015 fisheries data. They will be repeated annually until updated. The data are collected by the Northeast Fisheries Science Center, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, Alaska Fisheries Science Center and Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center and compiled and processed by the Northeast Fisheries Science Center. The indices are computed individually with 3 to 5 variables; thus each index represents a different concept. The data are placed in a principal components factor analysis to achieve a single factor solution. This produces a score that represents a community’s standard deviation from the mean (x=0). The standard deviation scores are categorized from low to high: category 1-low = below 0 SD; category 2-medium = above 0 to .499 SD; category 3-medium high = .500 to .999 SD; category 4-high = at or above 1.00 SD. Category 0 = N/A indicates the data is not available.

Purpose:

To describe and evaluate a coastal community’s ability to respond to changing social, economic and environmental conditions. The CSVIs are a valuable educational tool for policy makers, fishery management practitioners, stakeholders and the public.

Lineage Statement:

The social indicators were developed with multiple sources of data. Data are primarily drawn from the United States Census Bureau’s American Community Survey 5-year estimates and NOAA Fisheries. The social and gentrification pressure vulnerability indices were calculated with U.S. Census American Community Survey (ACS) five year rolling average estimate data from 2005-2009 to 2014-2018. The commercial fisheries indicators were developed using NOAA Fisheries landings data from 2009 to 2018. The recreational fisheries indicators were developed from 2009 to 2018 with NOAA fisheries and/or state (Texas, Louisiana, California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska) data unique to each region. The social and gentrification pressure vulnerability indices data series were paired with commercial and recreational fisheries indicators from the final year in each data series. For example, the 2005 to 2009 social indicator data series are paired with 2009 fisheries indicators. The sea level rise risk indicator was developed in 2015 for all coastal states except Alaska due to the unavailability of data. The storm surge risk indicator was developed in 2015 for Gulf Coast and Eastern U.S. communities due to hurricane risk. Both sea level rise risk and storm surge risk indicators were introduced in 2015 and paired with 2011 to 2015 social indicator data series and 2015 fisheries data.

The standard deviation scores are categorized from low to high: category 1-low = below 0 SD; category 2-medium = above 0 to .499 SD; category 3-medium high = .500 to .999 SD; category 4-high = at or above 1.00 SD. Category 0 = N/A indicates the data is not available.
