State Health Assessment
For the first time, the State Health Assessment report is accompanied by an electronic ‘Scorecard’ which illustrates data trends for many of the issues highlighted in the report. This scorecard provides historical data to illustrate how the health issues have evolved over time and what the current trends are. Unlike the report, the Scorecard primarily presents data in graphics and sometimes tabular formats, highlighting multiple-year trends of behaviors, diseases, and deaths.
Since the Scorecard does not provide an extensive narrative and the illustrations contain layers of information, tools have been created to assist users.
A brief PowerPoint presentation provides basic guidance on how to navigate through any Scorecard.
