Heat Vulnerability

Extreme heat events will become increasingly common as the climate warms.  

This story map evaluates Denver's vulnerability to extreme heat in the context of the interconnected socioeconomic, health and environmental conditions that can increase heat vulnerability.  

This map shows the overall heat vulnerability score for census tracts across Denver. The darker reds correspond to census tracts with the highest overall vulnerability. Overlaid circles are proportional to that census tract's population.
