New Dashboard Tracks Cities’ Health

by The 100 Companies

A data tool that tracks lifestyle metrics to help local officials address health challenges has expanded to include the largest 500 U.S. cities, including Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton, among others.

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 overall health. Metrics include the prevalence of physical disorders such as 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 the ability to compare themselves with peer cities and neighborhoods, track their performance, and interface with and analyze advanced microdata.
