Health Data

Data provides information about the health of a community and areas of need. It can be used as a tool to identify priorities, evaluate programs and policies, and to demonstrate need for funding.

People and Place

A healthy community is one in which local groups from all parts of the community work together to prevent disease and make healthy living options accessible. Working at the community level to promote healthy living brings the greatest health benefits to the greatest number of people. It also helps to reduce health gaps caused by differences in income, education, race and ethnicity, location and other factors that can affect health.
