What is the Community Health Survey?

partner buttonshow data button

Every three years, the Health District collects information about the health-care needs of our community through the Community Health Survey. The survey asks about access to care, physical health, mental health, and other health topics.

The Community Health Survey is sent to a randomly selected group of adult residents in Larimer County. We ask people a wide range of questions about their health and use of health-care services. We have been doing this every three years since 1995. Answers to the Community Health Survey are completely confidential. We study and report only on the results as a whole, and keep no personally identifying information on individuals who take the survey.
