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.
