Public Health - Data

To improve the health of all the residents of Houston County, Houston County Public Health partners with other key organizations such as hospitals, medical clinics and schools. 

Public health data represent important indicators and are significant because they track measures of health over time, allowing one to compare the local results with state and national goals and show where there are gaps in health status within the population as a whole as well as within specific groups.

Below are some links that allow you to see some of the most recent health indicators for the population of Houston County and to compare them to other MN counties and the state as a whole.
