The Health of Boston

About this Resource

The annual Health of Boston report is divided into 15 sections.  The report starts with a section on Social Determinants of Health, providing a foundation for the understanding of health disparities. This section is followed by a demographic profile and an introduction of neighborhoods. The remaining sections begin with an introduction describing the featured health indicators, followed by a short explanation of emerging trends and/or changes in the data elements. Each chapter concludes with a summary, list of references, and notes that clarify the data analysis.
