This guide is designed to assist in preparing community health profiles. The content of the guidelines is based on public health assessment as it is currently practiced in the United States. While other assessments may be focused on one or more specific issues, or on a particular population or sub-population, the Community Health Profile provides an assessment of the health of an entire population within a specific geographic area, from the youngest to the oldest.
