COVID-19 Impact Analyses

Argonne created a series of indices, analyses, and maps that provide a detailed understanding of the socio-economic effects of the novel coronavirus outbreak. These resources are designed to support and inform long-term COVID-19 recovery efforts across the United States. Argonne’s work is supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, via interagency agreement through U.S. Department of Energy contract DE-AC02-06CH11357. FEMA does not endorse any nongovernment entities, organizations, or services.

County Economic Impact Index

The goal of the Economic Impact Index is to identify regions whose local economies may be more adversely affected during medium- to long-term disruptions with near real-time data.

State & Local Government Revenue Vulnerability Indices

Argonne developed the State Government Revenue Vulnerability Index (SGRVI) and Local Government Revenue Vulnerability Index (LGRVI) to help identify state and local governments, respectively, whose revenues are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19 and other economic downturns.

Housing Stability Index

Argonne developed the Housing Stability Index (HSI) to better understand the changes in housing stability for owners and renters during the COVID-19 pandemic. While Argonne developed the HSI to assess impacts from COVID-19, this methodology can be applied to future shocks that result in widespread economic disruption dependent on continued data availability.

Internet Access Index

Argonne developed the Internet Access Index (IAI) to better understand the challenges many households face in connecting to high-speed internet, whether due to lack of broadband availability from internet service providers or difficulties in subscribing to a broadband service.

County High-Level Economic Recovery & Resilience Index

In order to assist governments to identify and assist communities that are especially vulnerable to the economic impacts of COVID-19. The County High-Level Economic Recovery and Resilience Index (CHERRI) Scorecard provides an assessment tool to assist in recovery planning and resource allocation decision making.

Territorial Economic Impact Index

Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne), developed the Territory Economic Impact Index (TEII) to track near real-time economic impacts to United States Pacific Island Territories, including American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.

Territorial Government Revenue Vulnerability Index

Argonne developed the Territorial Government Revenue Vulnerability Index (TGRVI) to help identify territorial governments whose revenues are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19 and other economic downturns.
