The socio-economic score (SES) is a comparative index value ranging from 1 to 100 which indicates the overall socio-economic status of an area. Four variables were used to produce the SES score: Median Household Income, Median Home Value, Occupational Level (percent white collar), and Educational Attainment – the percent of the population aged 25+ with educational degrees earned beyond a high school diploma. Each block group was given a score for each of these categories based on how it ranked against all other block groups nationwide. Once these scores were determined, an overall score for each block group was calculated by combining the individual scores using an un-weighted average. Finally, the overall scores were indexed on the 100-point scale.
