Another Use for See the Status of Kids in Your County

The Santa Clara Family Health Foundation’s data book “At a Glance: Status of Children’s Health in Santa Clara County” is an excellent example of how can be used to facilitate discussions about child health issues.

The 40-page booklet includes data about birth rates, teen births, and immunizations from, and many other topics from other data sources, including health coverage, water fluoridation, and mental health. While this booklet focuses on Santa Clara County, a similar report could be made for any county in California.

Kudos to the health foundation for creating a valuable snapshot of the status of child health in its county. This book is a useful reference for elected officials and other local policymakers. View the data book>>
