What is the SocioNeeds Index?

The SocioNeeds Index is a measure of socioeconomic need that is correlated with poor health outcomes. It is displayed on an interactive map where visitors can identify which zip codes in their community have the highest level of socioeconomic need compared to their region and the United States.

What is a promising practice?

Promising practices are best practices related to health or quality of life that have been found to be useful in improving the health of a community in some way. Healthy Communities Institute has identified a wealth of promising practices from around the country and internationally. They are a helpful way to identify strategies for making improvements in your community without reinventing the wheel. Healthy Communities Institute makes distinctions between practices that have been thoroughly and scientifically reviewed (Evidence Based) from those that have undergone less rigorous (Effective Practice), or perhaps no evaluation (Good Idea).
