FY 2019 ARC County Economic Status Designations Now Available
The Commission's annual county economic status analysis designates the 420 Appalachian counties as distressed, at-risk, transitional, competitive, or attainment, based on their ranking in a composite index drawing on the most recent data on unemployment, poverty, and per capita income. A similar analysis is applied to areas at the census-tract level. Resources available
