Every five years, Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH), in collaboration with the Jefferson County Board of Health, Jefferson County Health Council and numerous community partners, organizations and government agencies, undergoes a comprehensive community health improvement planning process resulting in a Jefferson County Community Health Assessment and a Community Health Improvement Plan.
Background Information from the Community Health Assessment completed in 2013
Jefferson County, with a growing population of 558,503 residents, includes urban, suburban, and rural areas. View County Demographics. County residents are generally well-educated and have a high median income. However, despite an overall decrease in poverty rates, poverty levels are increasing among households with children.
While the county has many assets, a 2013 Jefferson County Community Health Assessment revealed that chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancers are the leading causes of death in the county, and that these leading causes of death are linked to five common risk factors: poor diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and exposure, alcohol use, and chronic psychosocial stress.
