The Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development (ANDH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of New York City with a mission of helping lower-income communities to thrive and ensuring that all New Yorkers can live in decent, affordable housing and neighborhoods.
A recent report from the ANDH entitled 2015 Equitable Economic Development Indicators and corresponding interactive map shows the economic health of each neighborhood in the City based on a wide array of input variables.
The chart lays out 19 economic factors, disaggregating them by NYC community district. Some are obvious — poverty rates, percentage of households on food stamps, high school graduation rates, citywide economic development dollars spent. Some are less obvious, but essential to discussions of equitable economic development — percentage of local jobs paying less than $40,000/year, percentage of at-risk small businesses, percent change in land dedicated to manufacturing.
