Child Vulnerability Index Dashboard
December 07, 2022
In collaboration with The Opportunity Project 2022 sprint cycle of Addressing Children Resilience to Adversity in Puerto Rico, Centro’s Data Hub has created a Child Vulnerability Index as a tool to measure the potential negative effects on the children age population, under 18 years-old, in Puerto Rico by external stress on human health such as natural disasters or disease outbreaks. The Child Vulnerability Dashboard provides the index at the county and county-subdivision level, in both English and Spanish, which allows local children-focused nonprofits, community leaders, educators, and policy analysts to determine where children are most vulnerable in Puerto Rico by certain social conditions such as poverty, disability, and lack of internet access. The data was derived from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2020 American Community Survey 5-year estimates and is updated on an annual basis.
