Community Health Assessments and Improvement Plans
Benton County Public Health conducts a series of health assessments and improvement plans to address the health needs of the community.
The 2017 Benton County Community Health Assessment (CHA) displays a wide range of data about health indicators and factors that influence health. This data will inform the development of the 2018 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
The 2015 Regional Health Assessment (RHA) focuses on the health of the region that includes Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties. The counties work together on many health initiatives, and this document is part of their data-informed approach to that work.
