  • Disability, a new Health topic that explores local data on the county’s largest minority group.
  • Education of English Language Learners, a particular challenge for King County school districts, which serve the most diverse language communities in the state.
  • Sub-regional data (King County cities) for Affordable Rental Housing, Crime, Domestic Violence, Health Insurance, Teen Births, and Traffic Safety.
