Each goal is calculated with a variety of components. Components are the factors used to evaluate a goalโ€™s four dimensions: status, trend, pressure and resilience. Each component may be comprised of one or more data layers. Certain components are used in the calculation of more than one goal.

GOALS AND ASSOCIATED COMPONENTS

Select a goal below to show the associated components used in creating the overall goal score.

Status

Pressures

Resilience

COMPONENTS ARE ORGANIZED INTO FOUR DIMENSIONS

Status

Present Status is a goalโ€™s current value compared to a reference point.

Resilience

Resilience is the sum of the ecological factors and social initiatives (policies, laws, etc) that can positively affect scores for a goal by reducing or eliminating pressures.

Pressures

Pressures are the sum of the ecological and social pressures that negatively affect scores for a goal.

Trend

Trend is the average percent change of a goalโ€™s value over the last five years.

PRODUCING THE GOAL SCORE

The score for each goal is the average of the values for the Present Status and Likely Future Status. Likely Future Status is determined by combining Pressures 8.5% of total score and Resilience factors and the Trend of the Status (the most recent 5-years when available). Trend of the Pressures Status 33%; Pressure is 8.5%; Resilience is 8.5%. Present Status is 50% of the index score.
