Abstract

​The report describes the current status of women’s health and wellbeing in Los Angeles County using standard indicators that measure social and economic health determinants, health status, health care access, health behaviors, incidence and prevalence of selected health conditions, and cause-specific mortality rates. Data, from the 2013-2014 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) and other sources, are stratified by race/ethnicity and by Federal Poverty Level (FPL) to better understand disparities that exist. Where available and appropriate, Los Angeles County health indicators are compared to Healthy People 2020 targets, which are the benchmarks that our nation is striving to achieve.

The report includes three special health topic sections, including one on homeless women, one on educational level and health, and one on the health of American Indian/Alaskan Natives, which heavily relies on 2013-2014 CHIS data.
