description: <DIV STYLE="text-align:Left;font-size:12pt"><P><SPAN>PBOT’s Equity Matrix assigns a score (maximum of 10) to every census tract using two of the three demographic variables: race and income. Both race and income are rated on an index from 1 to 5. For the race score, the higher the percentage of residents the U.S. Census Bureau defines as people of color or Latino in a census tract, the higher the score. For the income index, the lower the median household income, the higher the score.   </SPAN></P><P><SPAN /></P><P><SPAN>Data is much more inconsistent and unreliable for limited English proficiency (LEP). In the Equity Matrix, we have placed a bold edge around the census tracts where we find LEP higher than the citywide average of 3.8%. This helps tell part of the story and lets us see where these numbers overlap with our race and income scoring. </SPAN></P><P><SPAN /></P><P><SPAN>Use the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons to zoom in and out. Use the magnifying glass search icon (��) to look up addresses or street names. Click on any census tract to see census data and scoring for that tract.   </SPAN></P><P><SPAN /></P><P><SPAN>For more information on how the Equity Matrix was developed and how the Matrix is used at PBOT, visit our What is the PBOT Equity Matrix? page. For technical assistance with the Equity Matrix, email pbotgissupport@portlandoregon.gov.</SPAN></P></DIV>
