This report is an update to the secondary data presented in the 2008 Comal County Assessment: Social and Environmental Determinants of Well-Being: Data for Planning and Policymaking. In addition, it presents an overview of the current well-being of Guadalupe County with an emphasis on health and related issues. Comal and Guadalupe County leadership, committed to discovering and analyzing the evidence and making it available for discussion and action planning, engaged Community Information Now (CI:Now), a local data intermediary serving Bexar and 11 surrounding counties, to collect and analyze new extant data to inform stakeholders about the changes that have occurred in Comal County during the last five years since the first assessment was published and to provide health-related information and trends for Guadalupe County.
