County and Zip Code Summary

The County and Zip Code Summary table allows users to view, save, and export publicly available data from several state offices all in one place. The table is set up to allow direct comparisons for zip code, city, county, and state level data.  

You can review all available data in the County and Zip Summary tab. Please review the “How to Navigate Summary Table” tab for instructions or further information.

Healthcare Facilities

Community Health Workers Prioritization Index


The Community Health Worker (CHW) prioritization index is an index designed to indicate the potential needs for Community Health Workers in a given area. The higher the score, the higher the need for a Community Health Worker in that location. The index is the summation of the Standardized Rates for the percentage uninsured rate, per capita income (reversely ranked), percentage of population aged 65+ years, percentage of females age 15-49, percentage of low birth weight, providers per 1,000 (reversely ranked), Infant Mortality Rate (IMR), number of FQHC/RHC (reversely ranked), and ED visit rate. Z-score standardization is utilized for these indicators. The index is calculated by the Min-Max scaling standardization of total CHW scores. Each component is presented as a map layer as well. Treatment facilities include MH treatment, BH treatment, and specialty treatment. How to use it: Click on the layer to see the map. Only the top layer you choose will be exhibited on the map, please be sure to uncheck other layers. You can click on an area to see the values for each measure on the map.

Maps

 

Data of special interest to our Center and our partners has also been pulled into interactive maps. To learn how to navigate maps and make the most of the available data, please review the “How to Navigate Maps” tab. Documentation and source information for each map is coded in the tab name (with an italicized letter) and can be found in the “Documentation” tab under “more Maps”.   

Note: Many of our maps visualize data using Zip Code Tabulated Area (aka ZCTA). ZCTAs were created by the US Census bureau and identify the most common zip code for a census block. In most case the ZCTA will be the same as the Zip code for an area.
