Annual Health Report Card, County Health Rankings and Data Analysis
The Health Report Card contains statistics and analysis for each county within the district and compares that information with District, State, National, and Healthy People goals. Some statistics included in the report card are demographic information, economic information, birth and death data, infectious disease data, chronic disease data, etc. Many of the data sets contain trend graphs to give a better overall picture of the burden of disease within our region. Also included are charts, tables and analyses of the County Health Rankings.
Analysis of data is a process of inspecting and modeling data with the goal of discovering useful information, suggesting conclusions, and supporting decision-making. The analysis of Lake Cumberland’s health data contained within the Health Report Card and the County Health Rankings help drive our community health improvement efforts. Also, review the minutes from our Data Analysis Committee.

Community Health Assessment
Mobilizing for Action Through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) is a community-wide strategic planning process for improving public health. The framework of MAPP assists communities in prioritizing public health issues, identifying resources for addressing them, and taking action to improve conditions that support healthy livening. The Health Policy and Promotion Branch facilitated the MAPP process across the ten counties, where over 150 community partners participated. One result of this process is the 2020 Lake Cumberland District Community Health Assessments (LCDCHA) Booklet. The assessment booklets, provides statistical information, community input, and environmental forces that determine a community’s health status, behaviors, and needs. The data compares statistics for each county to both the district and state.

Community Health Improvement Plan
The Lake Cumberland Community Health Improvement Booklet is a result of the MAPP process. Each county created a health improvement plan to guide their steps toward a healthy community. These improvement plans will be implemented over the next three years. The plans are driven by all the community health coalition partners, to improve the health status of a county it takes everyone within a county working together.
