Despite strong public health efforts, health inequities can be found in towns and cities throughout Connecticut. Moving our attention to the underlying community conditions and opportunities that support good health practices and outcomes can meaningfully improve quality of life for all residents.To that end, the Connecticut Association of Directors of Health has developed the Health Equity Index, which is a community-based analytic tool that profiles and provides measures representing community conditions in relation to specific health outcomes. The Index provides data, scores, correlations and GIS mapping for all 169 communities in Connecticut. The scores are calculated on a 10-point scale with 1 (red) indicating the least desirable community conditions or health outcomes, and 10 (green) indicating the most desirable. A score of 5 is the median value for the state.
The Index can be used to:
