Let's talk about your local county.

The Office of Health Disparities has added a new section to its website: County Health and Demographic Information.  This new section of our website includes a page for every county in the state of Utah. 
  • Learn about your county's health challenges and strengths related to mortality, morbidity, health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and the physical environment
  • See how the health of your county ranks statewide.
  • Find out demographic information about your county, such as population, race, ethnicity, age and income, and compare these measures to the rest of the state.
  • Enjoy interactive maps that illustrate facts about local race, ethnicity, income, education, housing and families.
The Utah Department of  Health is also currently working on creating local spotlights of Utah health data within  IBIS (Utah's Indicator-Based Information System for Public Health).  As soon as these spotlights are complete, we will add them to the resources already available in County Health and Demographic Information.
