Cleveland & Cuyahoga Health Data Matters. Data, Sharing, Innovation and Health Improvement

How healthy we are and how long we live is not just the result of our genes and our biology, but also a direct result of the health choices we make, the place where we live, the health care we receive, and policies and laws that affect our opportunities and choices. Among the social factors that contribute to health, the most important predictors are education and income. Health Data Matters explores the connection between these factors and the health of the people in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.
