    Five hundred cities project
  • Description:
    The 500 Cities project is a collaboration between CDC, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the CDC Foundation. The purpose of the 500 Cities Project is to provide city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service use for the largest 500 cities in the United States. These small area estimates will allow cities and local health departments to better understand the burden and geographic distribution of health-related variables in their jurisdictions, and assist them in planning public health interventions This project identifies, analyzes, and reports city and census tract-level data, obtained using small area estimation methods, for a select number of chronic disease measures for the 500 largest American cities. Measures include unhealthy behaviors (e.g., current smoking), health outcomes (e.g., coronary heart disease, diabetes, etc.), and prevention (e.g., health insurance coverage, cholesterol screening, etc.). The data is available through a public, interactive “500 Cities” website that allows users to view, explore, and download city- and tract-level data. 500Cities-factsheet-11152016.pdf
