This map displays areas which have been chronically underserved during 2014 (Jan-Oct). Underserved was dened as districts which had 0-10% (red color on FSC gap analysis maps) of the targeted needs met on a monthly basis. Underserved frequency was aggregated to display the total number of months a district had 0-10% of its targeted needs met. Reasons for being underserved were primarily due to access constraints.
