Analyze Neighborhood Health Trends with Expanded Community Health Report
Neighborhoods separated by miles can be separated by worlds in terms of socioeconomic conditions, health resources, and outcomes. Often, addressing a city or county’s health conditions means addressing the specific conditions of certain neighborhoods.
To better assess local health conditions, the PolicyMap Community Health Reports can now be created for census tracts, in addition to counties. Census tracts are about the size of neighborhoods in cities, and towns in more rural areas. Data from a wide range of sources is available at this local geography, making it easier to understand and address local health issues.
