How Healthy is Your Community? New Neighborhood-level Data Resources Now Available

Mar 14, 2023

A partnership with PolicyMap

Are people living in communities across Greater Cincinnati healthy and thriving? What barriers lead to some people living shorter lives across our region—up to 26 years less from one neighborhood to another? While access to healthcare plays a role, many other factors—a good education, affordable housing, a stable income, reliable transportation, and social connection—also work together to influence health.

Without reliable local data, and the stories behind it, health inequities remain hidden and unaddressed.

That’s why Interact for Health is partnering with PolicyMap, a mapping and analytics platform, to make publicly available data on health and its social drivers available to community partners across the Greater Cincinnati region. Check out this user-friendly interactive map that displays nearly 40 data points at the neighborhood and county levels for our region.

If you’re interested in digging deeper into the data, Interact for Health is also providing subscriptions to PolicyMap’s full data mapping tool—which includes thousands of data points on a variety of geographic levels—to select community partners. Contact Colleen Desmond, Senior Manager of Data and Learning, at to request a subscription for your organization.

Register for the Data Equity Primer with We All Count: A virtual workshop

Data and evaluation efforts are not inherently objective and unbiased. How data is collected or interpreted can be influenced by an individual’s values, biases and worldviews —often unintentionally. Purposefully taking an equitable approach strengthens transparency and rigor and helps to advance health equity.

Are you ready to learn more about how to build equity into data collection and analysis? The Data for Equity Funding Collaborative, a partnership among Interact for Health, bi3, and HealthPath, is sponsoring a free virtual Data Equity Primer with We All Count on Monday, April 3, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. EST.

The workshop will introduce organizations in the region to the core issues facing the equitable and ethical use of data and will include a Q&A period. Click here to register.
