A Decade of Local Area Data Collection
Since its inception, Interact for Health (formerly The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati) has made health data improvement a cornerstone of its work. One of Interact’s original and on-going projects is the Greater Cincinnati Community Health Status Survey (CHSS). The CHSS is a random digit dial telephone survey of adults in Interact’s service area (covering parts of OH, KY, and IN). The CHSS has been conducted since 1996. The primary goal of the survey is to track changes in regional social determinates of health, health behaviors, and health status. With this long history of data it is now possible to identify population-health level changes at the regional, county, and sometimes sub-county level. The availability and extensive use across sectors of this unique, high-quality, local data has contributed to a more collaborative and cohesive regional health environment. These population-health level changes and regional collaborations will be discussed in greater detail during the presentation.
