About the Process
The basis for these surveys was the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National
Survey of Children's Health (NSCH), and Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey (BRFSS). In
addition to these CDC surveys, planning partners identified local health indicators that were
included in the questionnaires.
The statistics contained in this report provide valid and reliable measures of the collective health
of Geauga County residents. This document will guide the Partnership for a Healthy Geauga
over the next few years to strengthen the local public health system and provide programs and
services that will improve the health and well-being of Geauga County residents.
This report would not exist without the financial support of many public and private agencies, as
well as the dedicated work of planning partners who took the time to carefully plan and carry
out the assessment. Special thanks are given to Britney Ward and Emily Golias of the Hospital
Council of Northwest Ohio for guiding us through the health assessment process.
It is our intent to periodically repeat this process in an effort to measure improvements and
identify emerging issues in population health. It is also our hope that this assessment will stimulate
new collaborations among public and private agencies during economically challenging times.
