With major metropolitan areas and nearly 100 rural counties, Missouri is a diverse state. Community data, including population demographics and community infrastructure information, help put health and environmental data into an appropriate context and enhance exploration of potential influences and risk factors for diseases or other health outcomes.

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.
