Orange County Equity Map

The Orange County Equity Map (OC Equity Map) is a data platform that spotlights social and health disparities in Orange County neighborhoods across multiple dimensions with a specific focus on the impact from COVID-19. This interactive map visualizes Orange County into 580 census tracts and displays the scores from the Social Progress Index (SPI), CDC Health Indicators, and population demographic data as well as overlays additional information that can be customized for a variety of different use cases.

Important Note

The legend displays the range for the Base Layer selected. Low scores will always be yellow and high scores will always be purple.  It is incorrect to always interpret yellow data points or low scores as “bad” or as a “less desirable” outcome.  The legend should be viewed within the context of the data stream selected.
