    The purpose of the 2010 National Profile of Local Health Departments study (Profile study) was to advance and support the development of a database for LHDs to describe and understand their structure, function, and capacities. With increased knowledge and awareness of LHD infrastructure, practice, and capacity, both research and local public health advocacy efforts would be enhanced by developing evidence-based practices related to LHD capacity and infrastructure and changing policy, practice, structure, and funding at the systemic level. With a strengthened LHD capacity to deliver the 10 essential public health services (Figure 1.1), an overall improvement in population-based health outcomes would be seen.
