Introduction to DPH 500 Cities

The 500 Cities project is a collaboration between CDC’s Division of Population Health, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the CDC Foundation. The purpose of the 500 Cities project is to provide city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service utilization for the largest 500 cities in the US. These small area estimates will allow cities and local health departments to better understand the burden and geographic distribution of health-related variables in their jurisdictions, and assist them in planning public health interventions.
