Get More BHC Data

Hundreds of adults, teens, and children from each of the 14 Building Healthy Communities (BHC) sites participated in the 2009 and 2015 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). Based on survey responses, BHC health profiles were produced, highlighting selected health topics and answering a variety of questions, such as: how many children have asthma? Or how many children were physically active last week? Or how many adults feel safe in their neighborhood?

These health profiles are a snapshot of community health, and present key health indicators important to the BHC initiative. Community estimates are compared to each BHC's respective county and the state.
