City Profiles

Communities Count   (Seattle)

September 2012 - December 2012

Over the next 12 months Public Health- Seattle & King County will be developing new data profiles for 22 cities and unincorporated areas of King County.  The profiles will include up-to-date demographics and measures of behavioral risks, access to care, health status, fertility, birth risk factors and mortality. Presented in a series of charts and tables, measures for the city—and, if the city is large enough, each neighborhood-- will be compared to King County and Washington State averages. We will pilot the reports in September and October in four South County cities, giving presentations to city planners and others to gather feedback. The south end is an area of growing poverty and diversity, and is the center of the county’s greatest health disparities.
