Identifies low-income and low-access census tracts using
4 measures of low access. The first measure is consistent
with the measure of food deserts used in the original Food
Desert Locator, where low access is defined as having a
significant number or share of people more than 1 mile (urban areas)
or more than 10 miles (rural areas) from a supermarket.
Two additional measures of low access using different
distance demarcations are provided, and a final measure of access
directly accounts for vehicle access.
Separately identifies the components of each combined low-income
and low-access layer. Also included is an indicator of census tracts
with high shares of people residing in group quarters.
