THE COMMUNITY HEALTH PROFILE
Compiled by the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center
130 Division St. Derby, CT (203) 732-1266
Compendium of Public Health Data for Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and the Lower Naugatuck Valley Towns of Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Oxford, Seymour, & Shelton.
The first Valley Health Profile was produced in 1998 at approximately the
time the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center was founded. It was created
to assess the health and well-being of Naugatuck Valley residents. The purpose
was to create a report whereby comparisons could be made between the health
of the populations of the Valley and the state of Connecticut and to present
Valley agencies with a useful, comprehensive document to inform program and
policy decision-making. A second edition including identified trends from
previous and updated data was produced in 2000 and a third in 2003-2004.
For this fourth edition, the “Community Health Profile (CHP)”again presents health information for not only the Valley and Connecticut, but also three of Connecticut’s largest cities, Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven.
The ultimate goal of the Profile is to develop an efficient and meaningful way of tracking various causes of morbidity and mortality in the people of the Valley, Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and Connecticut as a whole.
Included in this report are the methods and sources that were used to collect the data. In addition, a number of recommendations have been made to both future groups involved in compiling the CHP and community health agencies to increase the collection of comprehensive data to be included in subsequent editions of the Community Health Profile.
