Municipalities and community organizations use the data to identify and implement solutions to help improve the health and wellness of older people.
Each report includes maps to illustrate patterns, strengths, and opportunities across the state, plus comprehensive Community Profiles. The Community Profiles detail population characteristics and health indicators alongside state averages to help show the “big picture” about the health of older people in each community. Information on health outcomes is a critical planning tool for building a system of supports that effectively channels resources so that they flow consistently to communities across each state.
