More #opendata highlights: @CDCgov's 500 Cities project!

Thursday, January 11, 2018

The 500 Cities project was featured in Data is Plural this week!
Local health metrics.The CDC’s 500 Cities Project provides “city and census tract-level data, obtained using small area estimation methods, for 27 chronic disease measures for the 500 largest American cities.” The metrics range from cancer prevalence to binge drinking to dental health to undersleeping. The latest data release was published in December and covers more than 28,000 Census tracts.
I'm irrationally excited about this initiative and the potential for discovery in the data. So much so that I mentioned it in an upcoming installment of an open data series I am working on for Cadence Group.
