Mapping New York's Economy
The Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development has mapped out the economic development indicators for each New York neighborhood. What Does Your Neighborhood Economy Look Like? is an interactive map which shows the economic health of New York's neighborhoods for a number of key indicators.
The map includes a number of economic indicator layers. The initial 'total risk' layer shows the combined 'risk to opportunity' score for each neighborhood based on 19 economic factors. These include indicators such as poverty rates, graduation rates, development dollars spent etc.
The 'visible layers' menu at the top of the map allows you to view the scores for some of the individual economic indicators, these include Income & Benefits, Banking & Access, Education and Employment and Community & Infrastructure.
