The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) and its partners are creating a comprehensive dataset that encompasses small area health profiles that will reflect the impact of social, economic, and other factors on community health outcomes. Project analysts are geocoding and analyzing newly obtained and existing data from multiple sectors at the Neighborhood Tabulation Area (NTA) level (approximately 30,000 residents), increasing granularity to help identify and refine specific health needs. The NTA-level profiles will enable enhanced analysis, monitoring, and planning to promote the health of all New Yorkers and reduce health disparities in high-need communities.
