The DCI combines seven complementary metrics into a single measure of economic well-being, resulting in a clear snapshot of the economic and social state of the U.S. zip codes, counties, cities, and congressional districts. Places are sorted into quintiles based on their performance on the index: Prosperous, comfortable, mid-tier, at risk, and distressed."

Each of these four maps includes a timeline accompanied by a short explanation, which allows visitors to learn how certain policies and laws impacted demographic trends."
