Compare by Region: The colored gauge gives a visual representation of how your community is doing in comparison to other communities. The three-colored dial represents the distribution of values from the reporting regions (e.g. counties in the state) ordered from those doing the best to those doing the worst (sometimes lower values are better and in other cases higher values are better). From that distribution, the green represents the top 50th percentile, the yellow represents the 25th to 50th percentile, and the red represents the "worst" quartile.
Compare by Average: This gauge shows how the Orleans Parish value compares with the median or mean value for all counties in the state (or all US counties) when being higher (or lower) is good or bad.
Compare by Average: This gauge shows how the Orleans Parish value compares with the median or mean value for all counties in the state (or all US counties)when being higher (or lower) is not necessarily good or bad
Compare by Time Period: This gauge shows whether the Orleans Parish value is increasing or decreasing over time. A green arrow means the value is improving and a red arrow means the value is getting worse. The = (equal) sign means that there is not a significant increase or decrease since the last measurement. Target: This gauge shows whether or not the Orleans Parish value meets a specific target. The Orleans Parish value is represented by the left bar and the target value by the right bar.
Target: This gauge shows whether or not a specific target is met. A green check means the target is met and a red means the target is not met.
