Census County Division fully qualified geographic identifier (American Community Census, geoid2). This is the field to join the data in this table with the GEOID field in the TIGER Line shapefiles for County Subdivisions, so the data can be plotted in a mapping application (e.g., ArcGIS).

Raw.Index.Val_Housing.Charcter.
NUMBER
No
No
Active
Un-normalized principal component analysis (PCA) axis metric of Housing Characteristics: The housing characteristics index highlights the character of housing available within a community and measures the median rent (lowers vulnerability), median number of rooms in family dwellings (lowers vulnerability), and the percentage of houses that lack plumbing facilities (increases vulnerability).
9
Raw.Index.Val_Labor.Force
NUMBER
No
No
Active
Un-normalized principal component analysis (PCA) axis metric of Labor Force Structure: Labor force structure index provides an indication of the strength and stability of the labor force, including variables on the percent of females in the labor force (lowers vulnerability), the percent of those in the service industry (lowers vulnerability), as well as the percent of families with income under $10,000 (increases vulnerability).
10
Raw.Index.Val_Personal.Disruption
NUMBER
No
No
Active
Un-normalized principal component analysis (PCA) axis metric of Personal Disruption: The personal disruption index includes variables that might indicate unstable personal circumstances, including poverty (increases vulnerability), unemployment (increases vulnerability), and low educational attainment (increases vulnerability).
11
Raw.Index.Val_Population.Comp.
NUMBER
No
No
Active
Un-normalized principal component analysis (PCA) axis metric of Population Composition: The population composition index describes demographic variables identified as indicators of socially vulnerable populations, including the percent of young children (increases vulnerability), the percent of female-headed households (increases vulnerability), and the percent of people without a Bachelor's degree (increases vulnerability).
12
Raw.Index.Val_Poverty
NUMBER
No
No
Active
Un-normalized principal component analysis (PCA) axis metric of Poverty: The poverty index highlights the percentage of the total population in poverty (increases vulnerability) as well as the percentage in poverty of other vulnerable groups such as children (under 18; increases vulnerability), families with children under 5 (increases vulnerability), and single-female headed families (increases vulnerability).
