The data for this report was collected from surveys of Lorain County youth and adults and reported along with health information from national, state, and local data sources. The unique design of this CHA permits an examination of the diverse aspects of Lorain County by analyzing the data and reporting the health status by urban, suburban and rural community types. The results of Lorain County’s CHA and the public’s input will provide valuable information that will be used for planning purposes to begin building a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). After reviewing the data using the below links, please take our community survey so that we can include your thoughts as a part of this process.
