Community health indicators
A set of indicators measuring the health of King County residents
It was developed to provide a broad array of comprehensive, population-based data to hospitals, community-based organizations, community health centers, public agencies, policymakers and the general public. Community Health Indicators were conceived as a follow-up to the 2002 Institute of Medicine report, The Future of the Public’s Health in the 21st Century, which emphasizes relying on data about the entire community to look at multiple determinants of health.
Each indicator presents tables, charts, and maps on King County trends and demographics, data for King County Health Reporting Areas and comparisons to U.S., State of Washington and the Healthy People 2020 Indicator, if available.
The complete range of this data is not available for every measure.
