San Diego Today HOW HAS SAN DIEGO FARED SINCE THE GREAT RECESSION? Like most metro areas across the nation, San Diego saw a decline in well-being and access to opportunity since the start of the Great Recession due mainly to plummeting earnings and a myriad of other economic hardships. Median earnings, or the wages and salaries of the typical worker, fell by almost $3,000 between the pre-Recession period of 2006–2008 to the post-Recession period of 2010–2012, contributing to a decline in human development. All but four of the state’s major metro areas saw a reversal of well-being gains during the Great Recession.

The American Human Development Index The American Human Development (HD) Index for California is a composite measure of well-being and access to opportunity made up of health, education, and earnings indicators. The Index is expressed on a scale from 0 to 10.
