The South Carolina Healthy Communities Index: Visualizing Health Inequality Using Interactive Maps and Dashboards
Borders, Stephen
Geography Teacher, v19 n4 p142-153 2022
Health inequality continues to be a persistent and pernicious problem throughout much of the United States. Utilizing publicly available data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the author details how undergraduate public health and health administration students analyzed health inequities at the census tract level in South Carolina using ArcGIS Online via remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The lesson concludes with the creation of an interactive dashboard that brings a deeper understanding of the issues that matter through visualizing key trends and occurrences all without specialized software or a computing lab.
