Low and Moderate income is something defined by HUD for the CDBG program.  Moderate income is 50 to 80% of the area’s median income and low income is 50% and below.  The HUD data is generally at the Block Group level.  You could summarize the data by Tract or simply ID tracts that have a median income at or below 50% or the area’s median income.

Subject: [CTPP] FW: Question Regarding Mapping Low Income Population by Census Tract


Hey CTPPers, I received this query, I welcome your thoughts.



We are currently looking at environmental justice factors on Urban Arterials in the Denver Metro area, and I was wondering if you might have any insights into mapping low income population by census tract. The only data I have been able to find includes low and moderate income (from HUD), and I am having trouble even finding that data at the tract level. Do you know of a good data source for this? Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated.
