A collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the 500 Cities Project uses small area estimation methods to generate census tract-level health indicators for 500 U.S. cities. This approach combines survey information from the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) with demographic and socioeconomic data to estimate rates of selected chronic illnesses, prevention, and behaviors. At the local level, this data can be used to identify specific health issues; identify emerging health issues; establish health objectives; and develop targeted prevention activities.
