Congressional District Health Dashboard
The Congressional District Health Dashboard is an online tool that provides critical health data for all 435 congressional districts and the District of Columbia. Created by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, in partnership with RWJF, the Dashboard incorporates 36 key measures of health, such as deaths from cardiovascular disease and breast cancer, along with conditions that affect health, like housing affordability and access to nutritious foods.
Until now, most of these data were not available at the congressional district level, nor were they compiled in a single location or easily available to the public.
