Public health data
The Community Health Assessment is a tool to monitor the health of children and adults who live in Hennepin County. It serves as a resource for an ongoing conversation about policies and programs to enhance health in the county. Collection, review and analysis of health data is an important function of Hennepin County Public Health. Organization of that data into the community health assessment and relevant facts sheets is one way to share health data to inform stakeholders and the public about health issues and concerns in the community.
Hennepin County public health has compiled the following 34 fact sheets on various health topics that affect Hennepin County community residents, members and employees. Each fact sheet is organized in a similar manner, with a review of the current status for each selected topic, and where possible breakdowns by race/ethnicity, age, income, education and/or geography are provided, and in some cases comparison to state, local or national data and trend data. For most topics, the data in each fact sheet is an overview of what is available and more specific requests may be accommodated. For specific data requests or any questions on data in the fact sheets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Facts sheets are updated as new data becomes available.
