Abstract

This report proposes a new approach to investigate US health disparities that focuses on understanding populations' specificities before looking at their health profile. It first identifies the US's different populations or communities based on their behavioral, demographic, economic, and social profiles. Then it links these profiles to chronic disease prevalence rates. https://milkeninstitute.org/reports/community-explorer-county-level
