The Score

Enabling intelligent decisions to accelerate
economic recovery

The Crisis Impact Score™ provides businesses, governments, and nonprofits with data-driven insights on the individual and neighborhood level to:
Increase the visibility of those that are often overlooked
Provide needs verification for those facing a crisis
Enable targeted distribution to maximize resources
Uncover disaster recency, frequency & magnitude for proactive planning


The Crisis Impact Score™ applies machine learning and advanced analytics to measure individual impact, enabling organizations to recalibrate relief in a more equitable manner.
It leverages proprietary data from the Everest Effect marketplace and data partners, along with open source data to understand the context of the situation an individual is living in. The platform is also capable of integrating additional proprietary partner data sets.

How it Works

This unique methodology assesses holistic attributes of an individual to provide contextual information about the situation they are facing, offering a more inclusive approach compared to traditional verification methods.

There are currently four microscores that define the overarching Score:

The Geospatial Score

offers a deeper understanding of the neighborhood where the individual lives.

The Disaster Score

provides the severity and fragility of the disaster area.

The Challenge Score

captures the needs and situation of the individual in their own words.

The Identity Score

verifies and validates the identity and behavior of the individual.

The Score is a dynamic metric that offers the proper contextual information of what someone needs and when. It is designed to measure and speed up an individual’s recovery more effectively.

Solving the Problem of Prioritization for Relief Distribution and Access

The Score can deliver insights based on events, individual situations, and recovery status.

Recent use case: Improving Covid-19 vaccine Access

Using the Score we can identify the intersection of:
COVID acuity | vaccine distribution
Low access to public transit
Low car ownership
Low income areas
Elderly population
Available services for targeted geographies
That intersection can be used to:
Increase discoverability
Improve marketing effectiveness
Verify target users
Measure program impact
