Health Data and Statistics

County specific data on everything you could possibly want to know and a lot of stuff you don't want to find out about, including up to date tracking of the most common communicable diseases (yuck, I'd rather not know that stuff is near me), motor vehicle data, birth data, hospitalization data and more.


Tri-County Reports

  • The Community Monitor:  100 Indices of Health was developed with local policymakers, planners and program administrators in mind to help them better understand the communities they serve.  This chartbook explores current trends specific to 100 health indices, including indicators specific to socio-economics, behavioral risk factors, mortality, maternal and child health and morbidity.  The initial 2013 report will be updated periodically to reflect the most current information available.

  • Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey Tables Statewide telephone survey results detailing the prevalence of behaviors, medical conditions, and preventive health practices of Michigan residents 18 years and older.  Part of the national CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System.  These reports are combined results from several years of surveys and include results from the Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph region.  There are not enough surveys performed in each of our counties separately to have county level data.  Surveying adults at the County level is extremely expensive and the CHA does not participate in the BRFS at the single county level.


State Reports


  • PRAMS Report
    The Michigan Department of Community Health has released its Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) Annual Report for 2008.  This report contains state level data for selected pregnancy and early infancy indicators, including:  maternal demographics, unintended pregnancy, contraception, low birthweight, prenatal care, breastfeeding, substance abuse, infant sleep, domestic violence, HIV screening, folic acid awareness, WIC participation, and oral health.



National Reports

  • Healthy People 2020
    Healthy People is a set of goals and objectives with10-year targets designed to guide national health promotion and disease prevention efforts to improve the health of all people in the United States.  Healthy People 2020 is committed to the vision of a society in which all people live long, healthy lives. This decade, several new features will help make this vision a reality, including the recognition of health equity which addresses social determinants of health and promotes health across all stages of life.
  • The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System
    The YRBSS monitors priority health risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth and adults in the U.S.. These behaviors, often established during childhood and early adolescence, include
    • Tobacco use;
    • Unhealthy dietary behaviors;
    • Inadequate physical activity;
    • Alcohol and other drug use;
    • Sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV infection;
    • Behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence; and
    • Asthma

    The YRBSS includes national, state, and local school-based surveys of representative samples of 9th through 12th grade students. These surveys are conducted every two years, usually during the spring semester. The national survey, conducted by CDC, provides data representative of high school students in public and private schools in the United States.  To view information specific to Michigan, select Michigan from the State listings.


  • County Health Rankings
    Earlier this spring, the County Health Rankings—the first set of reports to rank the overall health of every county in all 50 states—were released by the University of Wisconsin’s Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  The 50 state reports help public health and community leaders, policy-makers, consumers and others to see how healthy their county is, compare it with others within their state and find ways to improve the health of their community.
