For the first time, extensive interactive data on health and well-being in King County communities is available on Public Health’s Community Health Indicators website. The site makes it easier to visually explore public health data and drill down by geography and other demographics.

From what’s the best predictor of a woman getting prenatal care to what’s happening with trends in binge drinking, these new visualizations make it easier to explore data on health and well-being in King County.
