Big Cities Health Inventory

Big Cities Health Inventory

The Big Cities Health Inventory is a standardized data collection hub that provides a “snapshot” of health in 30 of the largest, most urban US cities. Users can compare health indicators across most Big Cities Health Coalition member jurisdictions. Data are collected at the state, county, and city levels, as well as through a number of federally run surveys, such as the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey.

Health department governance varies from state to state. In some states, local health departments are led by employees of the state (centralized governance), whereas in other states, local health departments are self-led (decentralized governance). Other states use a mixed or shared approach.
