CHSI Relative Health Importance

$179 / year

This dataset identifies the data elements and values in the Relative Health Importance indicator domain from the Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) report.


Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) to combat obesity, heart disease, and cancer, this dataset provides key health indicators for local communities and encourages dialogue about actions that can be taken to improve community health (e.g., obesity, heart disease, cancer). The CHSI report contains over 200 measures for each of the 3,141 United States counties. Although CHSI presents indicators like deaths due to heart disease and cancer, it is imperative to understand that behavioral factors such as obesity, tobacco use, diet, physical activity, alcohol and drug use, sexual behavior and others substantially contribute to these deaths. The values are shown in percentage.
