Albemarle Region Community Health Assessment & Environmental Assessment

State of the County Health Reports

During the three interim years between Community Health Assessments, the local health departments are required to do a State-of-the-County's Health (SOTCH) Report that will:

  1. track priority issues identified in the Community Health Assessment;
  2. identify emerging issues;
  3. highlight new initiatives.

The State-of-the-County's Health Report includes the following:

  • A review of major morbidity and mortality data for the county;
  • A review of the health concerns selected as priorities;
  • Progress made in the last year on these priorities;
  • A review of any changes in the data that guided the selection of these priorities;
  • Other changes in your county that affect health concerns (such as economic and/or political changes, new funds or grants available to address health problems);
  • New and emerging issues that affect health status; and
  • Ways community members can get involved with ongoing efforts.
