The following was written by Sharon Bogan for Public Health Insider, and adapted from blog post originally featured on Communities Count:

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.



  • Click on a topic area, or use the search box or scroll to browse a list of indicators on the homepage.
  • Select an indicator. At the top, multiple tabs will bring you to charts, maps and other information.
  • Once a visualization opens, hover over the maps or colored bars to bring up a floating box with detailed information such as the name of the geographic region.
