County Health Data Book


2020 County Health Data Book

The State Center for Health Statistics creates the County Health Data Book on an annual basis to provide communities with quantitative data to support community health assessments. The data in the 2020 County Health Data Book are considered current for Community Health Assessments and State of the County’s Health Reports due the first Monday of March, 2020.

Data from the County Data Book are available here for download from the web. Click on the links below to download the files to your computer.

In order to view some of the data, you will need Microsoft Excel or the free Microsoft Excel Viewer. For other reports you will need Microsoft Word or the free Viewer for Microsoft Word.

Web Links for Data Related to Community Health Assessment

Due to reduced staff devoted to Community Health Assessment activities, the State Center for Health Statistics is no longer able to compile data from other agencies. We provide web links below for much of the data from external agencies that were included in previous data books.

For questions related to these data, contact If you have other questions or need clarification/assistance with the community health assessment process, contact your Local Technical Assistance and Training (LTAT) Nurse Consultant.
