Los Angeles Health Profiles
Los Angeles, CA
2014 Los Angeles APA Award of Excellence for Innovative Use of Technology
Raimi + Associates worked with the City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning to develop the user-friendly Los Angeles Neighborhood Health Profiles as part of the larger Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles. The interactive dashboard provides a data-informed snapshot of health issues and outcomes for each of the 35 Community Plan Areas in Los Angeles. The Health Profiles illustrate the geographic variation in socio-economic conditions, demographic characteristics, and health factors and outcomes.
The Neighborhood Health Profiles analyze over 100 indicators to document the geographic concentration of health disparities and inequities throughout Los Angeles. The Health Profiles connect Angelenos to city wide and neighborhood level data, and users are encouraged to explore the rich datasets to identify relationships between neighborhoods and among indicators. The Neighborhood Health Profiles are deployed through the website www.healthyplan.la. This Atlantic CityLab called this effort “The neighborhood data portal that every city needs” and the “gold standard for civic data delivery.”
