Local Data, Local HealthEach community – with its unique blend of history, providers, collaboration, competition and patient populations – brings a different approach to the table when it comes to health.

This Colorado Health Institute initiative – “Local Data, Local Health” – focuses on understanding the unique characteristics of Colorado’s communities, communicating that understanding clearly, and offering evidence-based solutions.

Staff members have traveled the state, meeting with community members and gaining a better understanding of the health and health care landscape.

Data You Can Use

We are providing PowerPoint presentations focusing on each of the state’s 21 Health Statistics Regions with in-depth data and analysis. They are available in the "Downloads" box to the right. We encourage their use – and invite questions about additional local data and analysis.
