CalEnviroScreen Draft 4.0 by Cities and Counties Dataset

This dataset was created to better understand the concentration of disadvantaged communities within the boundaries of cities, towns and counties in California.

One of the most important measures California uses to classify disadvantaged communities is CalEnviroScreen. This is done by census tract, but census tracts do not translate easily into municipal boundaries. A single census tract may exist within zero, one, or more, cities or towns.

Similarly, a single city, town or county often contains multiple census tracts. This makes it difficult to tell what proportion has been designated as disadvantaged.

This dataset allows users to tell what proportion of the population (in 2010) of a city, town, or county resided in census tracts at or above various percentiles in CalEnviroScreen.
