ASSESSMENT & DATA

We bring together reliable data to assess and understand population health issues and trends in Kitsap County: Who lives in our community? How healthy and safe are we? How healthy are our behaviors and lifestyles? How healthy is our environment? What are the epidemiological trends in disease? Are there any areas or people in our county more affected than others?
By using data to understand the County's most pressing health issues, and using the science of epidemiology to understand the factors that can cause them, we can prioritize public health resources to improve the specific health issues we face.


Our data are useful to a wide range of community members: a doctor might be interested in the current infectious disease rates; health data might be beneficial for a grant application that would bring more resources to our county; a student could use health data in a school report; and simple curiosity might compel your own interest.

OUR ROLE

We publish health indicators and compile an annual report that summarizes key health conditions and health-related behaviors as well as factors influencing the health and well-being of Kitsap residents. We also compare Kitsap County’s results to average results for all people in Washington State.

We review data from community healthcare providers to identify spikes in illnesses or symptoms that could be an early warning of food or water contamination, contagious diseases, or other hazards that can affect your health. Our data and reports are available on the Health District’s website for use by organizations and individuals in Kitsap County.  We strive to transparently display data that will help you keep yourself and your family healthy.

Our work is prioritized by the needs of our community and guided by our Health Officer, Health District leadership, the Board of Health and data suggestions and requests from organizations and individuals.
