Crater Health District’s Annual Report provides year-end review of the district’s performance in the areas of:
Communicable Disease Quarterly Report
Provides a quarterly review of the district’s communicable disease cases, information on trends observed, and infectious disease prevention strategies/initiatives.
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
BRFSS is the world’s largest, on-going telephone health survey system, tracking health conditions and risk behaviors in the United States yearly since 1984. The primary focus of these surveys has been on behaviors and conditions that are linked with the leading causes of death—heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and injury—and other important health issues.
Community Health Status Indicators
Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) report provides an overview of key health indicators for local communities. The CHSI report contains over 200 measures for each of the 3,143 United States counties. The CHSI mapping capability also allows users to visually compare similar counties (termed peer counties) as well as adjacent counties with their own county.
County Health Rankings
The County Health Rankings rank the health of nearly every county in the nation and show that much of what affects health occurs outside of the doctor’s office. The County Health Rankings illustrate the critical role that factors such as education, jobs, income, and environment play in how healthy people are and how long they live.
Chronic Disease Indicators
The chronic disease indicators (CDI) are a set of surveillance indicators developed by consensus among CDC, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD). CDI enables public health professionals and policymakers to retrieve uniformly defined state and selected metropolitan-level data for chronic diseases and risk factors that have a substantial impact on public health. These indicators are essential for surveillance, prioritization, and evaluation of public health interventions.
Virginia’s Atlas of Community Health
The Atlas provides dozens of community health indicators by Virginia cities and counties. The Atlas contains county and zip code level data for 114 population, economic and health indicators. It can produce maps to illustrate the health of a community.
VDH Cancer Data
Provides an overview of cancer in Virginia, data on different types of cancer, and cancer disparities.
VDH Division of Health Statistics
Provides a number of files which may be downloaded from this page to your computer, including data on pregnancy outcomes (including teen pregnancy), marriages and divorces, and population data by Virginia cities and counties.
VDH Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and Tuberculosis Data
Provides annual and quarterly data on STI and Tuberculosis cases by Virginia cities and counties.
VDH Tobacco Use Indicators
