The Office of Health Equity (OHE) has produced the
following dashboard to investigate place-based disparities in health
and social determinants of health in California. The explorative
dashboard highlights data on topics covered by the California Health
Interview Survey Neighborhood Edition (AskCHIS NE©) in 2011-2012 and 2013-2014. The ten topics covered are: delay
in receiving care, diabetes, food insecurity, self-reported health
status, mental health (psychological distress), obesity, smoking,
uninsured status, poverty, and unemployment. AskCHIS NE provides
health estimates at the local level (zip code and city). The goal of
OHEs dashboard is to expand on AskCHIS NE by providing data tools with
enhanced data visualization and integration of statewide and geographic
frames of reference, thereby improving the accessibility of health
information to policy makers, planning agencies, and community-based
Additionally, users can explore data on the relationships between pairs
of topics and how these relationships differ across the state.
AskCHIS NE estimates and confidence intervals have not been aggregated
or otherwise altered. For additional information on how estimates were
calculated, visit AskCHIS NE.
Additional data used in this dashboard was gathered from the U.S.
Census Bureau's American Community Survey zip code tabulation area
(ZCTA) and city population estimates. See our User Guide to explore the dashboard below.
