This map combines publicly available data from the U.S. Census, United Way, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, Community Health Indicators, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
A note on averages: The statewide and regional numbers are an average of the counties on a given indicator, not the average across the state/region. For example, the average county-level median income across the state of Michigan is $49,656, and the average percent of people living below the poverty line is 14%.
ALICE, a United Way acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, represents the growing number of individuals and families who are working but unable to afford the basic necessities of housing, food, child care, health care, and transportation.
