HRSA Updated Unmet Need Scores Now Available

In December 2022, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) released the Unmet Need Score map tool to provide information about the need for Health Center Program services by ZIP code. HRSA recently updated the data for the 28 health determinant and health status measures that factor into Unmet Need Scores (UNS). Find details about the data sources and calculation methodology in the UNS and Service Area Status (SAS) Resource Guide (PDF).

HRSA recommends using the tool to explore proposed service areas and do strategic planning.
