The Community Health Status Survey (CHSS) gives an in-depth look at the self-reported health of residents of Interact for Health’s 20-county region. It was first conducted in 1996 and was most recently completed in 2017.

Through comparisons, the Community Health Status Survey shows how Greater Cincinnati stacks up to the rest of the country and how our health is changing over time. The results give organizations and agencies, policymakers and residents the local data they need as they work to improve the overall health of the Greater Cincinnati area.
