2010 National Profile of Local Health Departments

In the Spotlight

NACCHO is pleased to announce the results of the 2010 Profile of Local Health Departments (Profile) study. With 82 percent of LHDs having completed their surveys, the data collected by the Profile study are the most comprehensive and accurate source of information about LHD infrastructure and practice in the United States. This high response provides the information needed to update the picture of local public health.

Profile data is useful to practitioners and policymakers at the local, state, and federal level; researchers; the media and the public. With information on LHD governance, funding, workforce, and activities, services and more, the data can be used to make local and regional comparisons, drive policymaking, educate the workforce about local public health practice, and conduct research.
