  • HC has been successful in LA as an information + action resource because of the partnerships we established early on in the development of the project to help us understand and meet the needs of communities. Going statewide, HC continues to be committed to forming partnerships to address community needs. At this stage, HC has 4 primary types of formal partnerships supporting the project in the statewide expansion. This includes our Founding/Governing partners here in Los Angeles; Statewide partners – experts in policy/advocacy issue areas; Regional partners to provide support, training, etc. to communities in their region; and our I & R (2-1-1) partners who provide the detailed resource information to help find local services, program planning, assess community needs, etc.
  • HC.org provides these people in these various roles with data and technology to support their work on behalf of our communities. HC.org helps encourage data-driven planning and inform policy within sectors such as Education, Public Safety, Health, Public Health, Government, etc.

HealthyCity.org now features new data from the California Department of Social Services, California Employment Development Department, California Cancer Registry and many more new data sources. More current … and more years of data We have added 2009 Nielsen Claritas, Inc. estimate data to our publicly available data and updated data from the California Department of Public Health, California Department of Education, and American Community Survey and many other datasets. We now feature data collected in the 1990s as well as the 2000s, allowing longer time comparisons and better data trending capabilities. Broader in scope, while more focused on local communities HealthyCity.org now covers the State of California in addition to Los Angeles County. Users can now view more data and smaller geographies such as block groups, and new geographies such as Air Basins and updated Voter Precincts are available for search.
