Indiana Community Needs Maps

The maps below were generated using the Community Need Index as a major indicator of need in a specific region. The Community Needs Index (CNI) was developed by Dignity Health and Truven Health Analytics to indicate community health care needs based on socio-economic factors. The CNI generates a score to determine areas with the highest need with a scale ranging from 1.0 to 5.0. A score of 1.0 indicates a zip code with the least need, while a score of 5.0 represents a zip code with the most need. The CNI score is derived by taking an average of the five barrier scores.

The barriers and statistics that comprised the score are indicated below.

Income Barrier

  • Percentage of households below poverty line, with head of household age 65 or older
  • Percentage of families with children under 18 below the poverty line
  • Percentage of single, female-headed families with children under age 18 below poverty line

Cultural Barrier

  • Percentage of population that is minority (including Hispanic ethnicity)
  •  Percentage of population over age 5 that speaks English poorly or not at all (limited English proficiency)

Education Barrier

  • Percentage of population over 25 without a high school diploma

Insurance Barrier

  •  Percentage of population in the labor force, aged 16 or more, without employment
  •  Percentage of population without health insurance

Housing Barrier

  •  Percentage of households renting their home. 


Please select a county to view a Community Need Index for that area. Information was gathered using the Uniform Data System (UDS) Mapper tool.
