MAPP Priority Indicators: How Healthy is Our Community?
Visit BRHD’s Tableau Public page for 20+ interactive MAPP indicators by priority. MAPP priority indicators are long-term community indicators measured over time (years) and represent areas that require collective action from multiple agencies and sectors to address.
Considerations in indicator selection included:
- Sample size and population
- Timeliness—are the data recent? Is collection of data ongoing and are there planned data releases?
- Geography—are the data available at a local level (by county or smaller)?
- How well does it address the priority?
- Overall balance between indicators within the priority with ~5 indicators per MAPP priority
