West Nile Virus risk and susceptibility in central California modeling dataset

Description

The dataset was developed to support research intended to develop a spatially explicit model that explores environmental data related to the risk of exposure to West Nile Virus (WNV), and the susceptibility to WNV disease based on demographic data of the potentially affected population. The model was developed and then tested on census tracts in an identified hot spot of WNV in central California. The dataset contains (1) U.S. Census Bureau 2010 demographic data for 1,133 census tracks in the hotspot, and (2) and average mosquito habitat risk data for each of those census tracks.
