SELF SUFFICIENCY INDICATORS REPORT

The ACS FY2020 Self-Sufficiency Indicators Report provides information to inform the Howard County community about our neighbors and colleagues whose economic stability is at risk and to contribute to data-driven public policy discussion and development.  It includes indicators in the areas of finance, housing, food, childcare, and health care, and for the first time, many of the indicators are disaggregated by race and ethnicity.

When considered collectively, these indicators provide an overview of the challenges faced by Howard County’s most economically vulnerable households as they strive to provide for the basics of day-to-day living.  We encourage ACS members and other individuals and public and private organizations to use the data in their education and advocacy efforts.
