The Claude Pepper Center is developing interactive maps and dashboards that integrate data related to behavior, occupation, health, and economy in the State of Florida. These tools allow users to compare and contrast variables from Florida populations with other regions across the United States. The main focus of our work is age and aging, and how they interact with health and policy. Our maps and dashboards are constantly updated with the latest public data from authoritative sources, including our own peer-reviewed research.
Our maps and dashboards are hosted on Esri ArcGIS and Microsoft Power BI. We have simplified, curated, and arranged the data to fit the requirements of those platforms. Statistical estimates and geographic areas derived from our products may differ significantly from the source data. Please contact us to learn more about how our data operations may affect your interpretation of the results as seen in our maps and dashboards.

Elder Needs Index
The Elder Needs Index is an instrument of the Florida Department of Elder Affairs to assist the public, scientists, and policy makers in estimating the geographic areas of vulnerability and probable need for assistance from the aging network. Government institutions, private providers, and researchers can use this information to assist planning and intervention.
