Socioeconomic

Learn about the ocean’s value to your local economy with the Portal’s Socioeconomic data. The map data are derived from the Economics: National Ocean Watch (ENOW) Explorer database, available through NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management Digital Coast Partnership. The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean recently published a report on the economic vulnerabilities that climate change poses for to the region. We offer map data produced for the report as a resource for users. You can download it at http://portal.midatlanticocean.org/static/data_manager/data-download/Zip_Files/Socioeconomic/CCV_CoastalMidAtlantic_Counties.zip.
