Abstract or Description

This map shows the weighted risk of contracting Lyme disease for each of Maine’s school district blocks organized by county between the years 2009-2014. Each county was assigned a weighted value of 1-5 based on average number of confirmed cases per year compared to the total population. Each county is also subdivided into smaller blocks which represent different school district blocks.
