The Gini index is the most commonly used measure of income distribution and is estimated annually for U.S. populations by the Census Bureau based on household income. The Gini index has a theoretical range of 0 to 1. An index of 0 indicates perfect equality, where all households have the same income. An index of 1 indicates maximal inequality, where one household has all the income and the others have none. The Gini indices for the U.S. and for the state of Georgia for 2016 were both around 0.48. (It should be noted that the Gini index can be calculated in different ways and can therefore vary between sources for the same population. The Census Bureau, for example, calculates the index based on pre-tax income, so their index will appear high compared to sources that use income after tax transfers.)
Percent of Investigative Scene Responses within 45 Minutes of Notification of Deaths where Scene Response is Required - Department KPIsharefulton.fultoncountyga.gov | Last Updated 2019-08-06T18:32:47.000Z
The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office is required by law to investigate deaths that are thought to result from injury or poisoning (such as homicide, suicide, and accidental deaths), and those deaths that are sudden, unexpected, and not readily explainable at the time of death. Investigations often include examination of the deceased at the death scene in order to best determine the cause and manner of death. This performance measure tracks the percentage of cases for which the investigator arrives at the death scene within one hour once legal authority and duty to investigate have been established.
