The City Health Dashboard helps cities understand, compare and take action to improve health status and health risks in their municipalities. Created by the Department of Population Health at NYU Langone Medical Center and the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service at NYU, in partnership with the National Resource Network, the City Health Dashboard launched in early 2017 in four cities: Flint, Michigan; Kansas City, Kansas; Providence, Rhode Island; and Waco, Texas.
With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the City Health Dashboard team is now in the process of scaling this valuable tool to become a central health improvement planning resource for 500 U.S. cities with populations of 70,000 or more. The enhanced version will be available by mid-2018, giving hundreds of U.S. cities tools to more accurately identify and prioritize their most pressing health needs.
Users of the City Health Dashboard have the ability to view the health status, together with key determinants of health and health equity, at the city or, in many cases, the neighborhood level. Data presented by the City Health Dashboard are drawn from federal government agencies such as the U.S. Census Bureau and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as state government agencies and other organizations that apply rigorous methodology to data collection. The expanded version will also link to evidence-based interventions, allow for comparison with similar cities, and provide additional resources for city leadership, communities and other key stakeholders.
