The 2009 Community Health Indicators Report provides an overview of key health indicators for Kent County. Each indicator is an important health issue by itself, but together, these indicators help us understand that there are many factors that matter to the health of individuals and communities. This report tracts indicators over time and compares Kent County to Michigan and the Nation. The report also benchmarks the most recent data to data collected in 2002. It is intended to be the basis for generalized statements about whether health in Kent County is improving, declining or staying the same.
