Get BHC Data
The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research makes available health profiles that present important data from the 2009 and 2015 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) oversample of 14 Building Healthy Communities (BHC) sites. They provide a snapshot of key health findings within each community, and can be used to mobilize friends and neighbors, advocate for improved health, secure greater resources, and guide community planning.
Differences between 2009 and 2015 Estimates
Data collection between the 2009 and 2015 CHIS BHC oversample differs in both sampling strategy, and eligible population. Due to these differences, we do not recommend comparing between 2009 and 2015 BHC estimates. Learn more about BHC data collection.
