ETindex News and Updates
ETindex is a powerful tool for tracking community conditions at regional and county levels, and many of the 87 economy and quality of life indicators featured on the site allow for neighborhood-level exploration.
Maps of small areas, called census tracts, are provided throughout the website. They show neighborhood information like population counts, race/ethnicity, family type, and income, as well as details about homeownership, housing vacancy, and cost.
The ETindex is an assembly of economic and quality of life data for an eight county area in East Tennessee. This tool provides a means for citizens, non-profits, foundations and local governments to monitor major trends in the region and serves as a starting point for conversations about ways that our communities can be made stronger and more livable.
