Public health data
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 other reports provides health data to inform stakeholders and the public about health issues and concerns in the community.
The county uses the Community Health Assessment 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.
Public Health also prepares reports and briefs that are topic-specific, often including a review of the current status, 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 more specific requests may be accommodated.
