The City Health Dashboard is a new resource to help cities understand, compare and take action to improve health status and health risks in their municipalities. Twenty-six measures related to health are represented across five domains: Health Outcomes, Health Behaviors, Clinical Care, Social and Economic Factors, and the Physical Environment. This version of the City Health Dashboard includes data for four cities: Flint, MI; Kansas City, KS; Providence, RI; and Waco, TX.
Many of the measures reported here have not previously been readily accessible at the city level. By bringing together data on health status, behavioral risks, and social determinants of health, conveniently calculated to the city (and in some cases neighborhood or census tract) level, the Dashboard adds a vital new resource for cities seeking to improve population health.
When feasible, the Dashboard draws on measures common to other resources (such as the County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, or the 500 Cities initiative).
This initiative is led by NYU School of Medicine’s Department of Population Health and NYU’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service, in partnership with the National Resource Network.
