United States Quality-of-Life Indicators
The United States Quality-of-Life Indicators tool allows you to extract information about specific quality-of-life dimensions and variables of a specific community (e.g., town or the geopolitical unity of a specific address). You can also compare the selected community with other communities in the U.S. The quality-of-life dimensions include demographics, economic wellbeing, education wellbeing, environmental wellbeing, health wellbeing, housing wellbeing, safety wellbeing, shopping wellbeing, social wellbeing, and work wellbeing.
