The Associated Press has introduced its Economic Stress Index, which it describes as a service that “will provide monthly, multi-format updates on the economic stress of the United States down to the county level.”

An announcement states it weighs three economic variables — unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcy — “to produce a score on a scale of 0-100 that measures how the recession is affecting a county compared to all others.”
