Take a look at a data tool that tracks metrics that will help local officials address health challenges in the largest 500 U.S. cities, including Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton.
The City Health Dashboard, developed by the Department of Population Health at New York University’s School of Medicine, rates cities according to 36 factors that influence health. Metrics include the prevalence of physical disorders like obesity and cardiovascular disease as well as the rate of primary care physician coverage, income inequality and high school graduation rates.
The dashboard gives cities a chance to compare themselves to their peer cities.
