About the COVID-19 Economic Vulnerability Index

The average Vulnerability Index score is 100, representing the average job loss expected in the United States. Higher scores indicate the degree to which job losses may be greater. For example, an index of 200 means the rate of job loss may be twice as large as the national average. Conversely, an index of 50 means a possible job loss of half the national average.
