Community Health Assessment Data
The Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department conducts community health assessments as one of our core functions. This information will enable ZMCHD and other health agencies in the county to direct resources toward areas of greatest need. Please feel free to use this information to improve programs, and support your grant applications.
During the Community Health Assessment completed by the Healthier Muskingum County Network, data was collected following a process called Mobilizing Action Through Planning and Partnerships. This process called for the completion of four assessments to define our community for health status, our themes and strengths, the forces of change at work in our community, and an assessment of our capacity as a local public health system. This report, the Picture of Health for Muskingum County Residents, highlights the priority data that will be tracked over the next five years to evaluate our progress for strategies outlined in the Muskingum County Community Health Improvement Plan.
The Picture of Children’s Health for Muskingum County contains baseline data for health issues related to our children such as health conditions that put our children at risk for disease, injury and death; and increasing breastfeeding rates because of the Muskingum County WIC program.
