With major metropolitan areas and nearly 100 rural counties, Missouri is a diverse state. Community data help put health and environmental data into an appropriate context. Data about a population enhance exploration of potential influences and risk factors for diseases or other health outcomes. Information about age, sex, race and behavior or lifestyle choices may help in understanding why a person has a particular health condition. Find community profiles and links to demographics, income, poverty, housing and other socio-economic data below.

Community Profiles

The environment in which we live and work can have a substantial impact on our health. The Community Profiles provide a snapshot of environmental public health in our communities. You will find demographics and environmental public health data for all counties and the 15 largest cities in Missouri. At the end of each profile, you will find information on the data presented and links to the data sources. The profiles summarize data that might serve as a useful starting point for investigating environmental public health issues, identifying high risk populations, planning public health actions, or making policy decisions.
