The CDC Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have marshaled the power of local data across the 500 largest cities in America to help tackle chronic disease. A website, launched in the summer of 2017, makes available small area health data that will allow community leaders, researchers, policymakers and others to better understand trends in disease patterns and factors at both the individual and community level that might influence these trends. Data at the city and neighborhood level will inform local policymakers’ efforts to improve the health and wellbeing of community residents. The public interactive website will allow also users to be informed and engaged with these local efforts to impact pubic health city by city.
