About every three years, the Community Health Status Survey conducts telephone interviews to learn about the health of adults in Greater Cincinnati. Once again in 2017, the survey, funded by Interact for Health, took an in-depth look at the health of the region’s growing population of Latino adults.

While any changes are interesting to note, small subgroup oversamples such as the Latino oversample have a larger margin of error and are more likely to be volatile than the larger regional sample. It is important to monitor changes over time to see if the trends continue.
"Greater Cincinnati, like the nation, has a growing Latino community," said Liliana Rojas-Guyler, Associate Professor at the University of Cincinnati and Community Health Status Survey consultant. "This year’s report will be useful in assessing, providing and educating about the service needs of Latinos."
Interact for Health regularly conducts research and collects data in order to monitor and evaluate our region’s health status and to measure public opinions about health policy.
Our Health in Action stories highlight the innovative work our grantees are doing to help reduce tobacco use, address the opioid epidemic and ensure that children can access health care through school-based health centers. We also interview people working on those issues at other organizations across the country to learn what works for them.
