Healthy People 2020: A Look at Three Key Public Health Objectives

On National Public Health Week 2016, the Big Cities Health Coalition took a look at how cities are progressing on their Healthy People 2020 Goals, as outlined by the U.S. Department of Health.  We found that on two key indicators, curbing binge drinking and adult obesity, cities are on track to meet their goals. On preventing homicides, another key benchmark, cities are facing greater challenges. To see how your city is doing on any of these indicators and more, visit The Big Cities Health Inventory Platform, where you can find over 12,000 points of data on the state of urban health.
