This neighborhood-level health data was recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of their 500 Cities Project. Experts say health is profoundly linked to where your live and the available resources and opportunities for making healthy choices, so it's important to be able to see health data at the more granular level. Local health data can help community members and public health officials take more targeted, effective action to address root causes of health problems.
