New York Climate Change Displacement Map

NY Displacement Map

This map calculates the threat of climate change displacement by overlapping three layers of data:
  1. flooding during hurricane Sandy/hurricane evacuation zones;
  2. income data, i.e., those making under $50,000 per year;
  3. cost of housing, i.e., high rent areas and areas in which renters spend over 50% of their income on housing expenses.
Displacement Zones are areas where all three layers overlap. This map was produced in 2018 and updated in 2020.
