Methodology Notes

The National Profile of Local Health Departments study is designed to develop a comprehensive and accurate description of local health department infrastructure and practice. For the National Profile of Local Health Departments study, National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) distributes an extensive questionnaire to every local health department (LHD) in the U.S. Hawaii and Rhode Island were excluded from the study, because state health departments operate on behalf of local public health and have no sub-state units. LHD is defined as “an administrative or service unit of local or state government concerned with health, and carrying some responsibility for the health of a jurisdiction smaller than the state.” Community-based organizations (CBOs) include local health departments, tribal health services, nongovernmental organizations, and multiple State agencies.

Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020
This objective is modified from Healthy People 2010 Educational and Community-Based Programs objective 7-10 which tracked the proportion of Tribal and local health service areas or jurisdictions that have established a community health promotion program that addresses multiple Healthy People 2010 focus areas. It has been expanded in Healthy People 2020 to nine objectives addressing population-based primary prevention services, i.e., injury, violence, mental illness, tobacco use, substance abuse, unintended pregnancy, chronic disease programs, nutrition, and physical activity.
