Create your own community dashboard by using all indicators or search for just a few. Using "location type" and "location" you can create dashboards for counties, regions, and the state. By creating the three separate dashboards you can compare your county to the region and the state.
If you want to create a visual comparison report of the geographic areas, select
There are some important caveats on the dashboard displays related to small number of events: 1. If too few events occurred, County or region dashboards won't display. 2. Counties or regions with a displayed value of zero had no events reported. 3. If dashboard displays involve a number of counties or regions, some dashboards may not refer to the same time period. Data from the most recent time period available for each county/region are displayed.
Also note that the rounding of percents, rates, and counts may not exactly match other reports and publications.
The colored gauge gives a visual representation of how your community is
doing in comparison to other communities. The three-colored dial represents the distribution of values from the
reporting regions (e.g. counties in the state) ordered from those doing the best to those doing the worst (sometimes
lower values are better and in other cases higher values are better). From that distribution, the green represents the
top 50th percentile, the yellow represents the 25th to 50th percentile, and the red represents the "worst" quartile.
This gauge shows how the County: Pratt value compares with the median or mean value for all counties in the
state (or all US counties). The gauge is blue and white when being higher (or lower) is not necessarily good or bad and is multi-colored when
being higher (or lower) is good or bad.
