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.

The 2013 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) shows the current goals and objectives for improving the health of Benton County. This will be updated in 2018.

The 2012 Community Health Assessment (CHA) is the 2012 CHA. For the most up-to-date information, please view the 2017 CHA.
