Census Bureau Releases Latest Data on Community Resilience

Press Release Number CB21–TPS.87

AUG. 10, 2021 — The U.S. Census Bureau today released the 2019 Community Resilience Estimates to measure the ability of a population to withstand adversity from the impacts of disasters, including weather- and disease-related events such as pandemics, forest fires and floods. Later this month, the new data will also be available through a tool that shows risk level by state, county and tract.

These estimates are created using data from the 2019 American Community Survey 1-year estimates and population and housing unit estimates.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute of Standards and Technology, academic researchers, local planners and other stakeholders can use the estimates to study the impacts of and plan recovery from disasters.
