Minnesota County-level Indicators for Community Health Assessment
The Minnesota County-level Indicators for Community Health Assessment is a listing of indicators across multiple public health categories and from various data sources. This list of indicators has been gathered together to assist Minnesota’s local health departments (LHD) and community health boards (CHB) in their community health assessment and community health improvement planning processes. LHD/CHBs are not required to use these specific indicators, nor are these indicators intended to represent the only measures that LHD/CHB might want or need to examine to do a thorough community health assessment and plan.
The indicator lists are available in two documents: one sorted by the Minnesota Statewide Health Assessment themes and one sorted by the main data source. These documents list the indicator, provide the link to the main data source, and indicate where in the data source the data for the indicator can be found.
