In the King County Community Health Indicators Project a set of statistical indicators has been compiled to measure the health of King County residents. The indicators provide a broad array of comprehensive, population-based data to community-based organizations, community clinics, public agencies, policymakers, and the general public in an accessible format.

The King County Community Health Indicators Project was conceived as a follow-up to the 2002 Institute of Medicine report, The Future of the Public's Health in the 21st Century (external link, PDF file), which emphasizes the use of data for the entire community to look at multiple determinants of health. The King County indicators were assigned to health determinants such as social determinants, risk factors, and health outcomes. Within each determinant, indicators are arranged by topic, such as air quality, injury/violence, and chronic disease.

For each indicator, the most recent data, trend over time, demographic comparisons, neighborhood-level data, comparisons to other metropolitan counties, and the nationwide Healthy People 2010 objective (external link) are presented in linked tables, maps, and charts. (The complete range of this data is not available for every measure.)

The King County Community Health Indicators Project was developed by Public Health - Seattle & King County with the input and support of the King County Board of Health.
